Carsem Announces Extremely Thin MLP

October 22, 2009

IPOH, Malaysia, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Carsem, a leading provider of turnkey packaging and test services to the semiconductor industry, announced that they now offer an extremely thin version of their MLP (Micro Leadframe Package). The current offering, referred to as the X3 package, is a two lead package with nominal dimensions of 0.6 mm long by 0.3 mm wide and 0.3 mm thick, which is very similar in size to a 0201 surface mount component. Carsem is currently in the process of registering the package outline with JEDEC’s (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) JC-11 Committee for Mechanical (Package Outlines) Standardization.

The package is produced using Carsem’s advanced MLP manufacturing capabilities including saw-singulation, which provides a package with precise square edges to assure easier handling during the printed circuit board manufacturing process. Carsem will begin offering high-volume, full turn-key manufacturing services, including electrical testing, laser mark and tape-and-reel, in early 2010.

Rick Flowers, Carsem’s V.P. of World Wide Sales and Marketing stated, “We developed this package to primarily support the need for an effective solution to the manufacture of transient voltage suppression (TVS) diodes that are used to protect the electronic communication and consumer devices against electrostatic discharges (ESD). We expect the need for this extremely thin version of our MLP to expand to include other package body sizes and lead counts.”

Carsem’s Chief Technology Officer, L.W. Yong stated, “The technology staff that worked on our ‘X3 Package Development Team’ did an outstanding job in meeting the multiple challenges in creating this extremely small MLP package. I am very proud of their efforts and dedication.”
