Steve is right. There is a difference between flat ribbon "devices" and flat ribbon "cable". IPC standards are the same for flat ribbon as gull wing. Here's a pic for example: http://www.topline.tv/FLATPACK.html

Greetings, Does anyone know where to find a tape and reel flatness specification? Looking at the EIA 481-B standard, there is no reference to the tape flatness (the images shown may "imply" flatness from one side of the tape to the other, However I

When you say "SMD" I am assuming you are refering to a component. But in your description you mention these are some type of "boards". "flatness" or coplanarity is a function of the application and process. I think in your case your standards wo

Let's look at it this way... Imagine a multileaded component sitting on a flat surface. If all the leads touch the flat surface, they are all in the same plane (that of the flat surface) and are coplanar. Coplanarity is desirable because if a lead is
