Implementation of shrink wrapping tray products to replace plastic bandstraps and cardboard sheets. Shrink wrapping is an overwrapping method for retaining multiple trays. This simple procedure-wrapping, sealing, and shrinking- enhances productivity and product quality.
- The film's clear transparent properties allows operators to handle product without concern to orientation during film removal.
- The film will protect leads and packages from particulate contamination and restrict accessibility to leads by providing lead protection.
- This film eliminates the need for cardboard to be introduced to a manufacturing operation.
- The films static decay time is less than 2 seconds.
- The films surface resistivity is 10E12 to 10E14 ohms/cm sq.

ESD - IC Mortality Failure Rates:
The Cryovac EPD-512 is a 150 gauge, 3-ply, coextruded polyolefin film made with a static-dissipative core and clean outer ply polymers. It has a static decay rate of less than 2 seconds and a surface resistivity of less than 10E14 ohms/cm sq. after shrinkage. All of its properties together provide exceptional clarity, skintight shrinkage and static-free protection. The excellent shrinkage of Cryovac EPD-512 film and the natural air gap of tray assemblies provide static protection for essentially all devices. Through IC mortality test, we discovered that the Cryovac EPD-512 film was very capable of securing our 11x11 PGA test devices from ESD failures. Using a Human Body Model (HBM) instrument (100pF/1500 ohms) with a 3 oz. electrode, which reduced the air gap between the film and the tray assembly, revealed no failures at or below 12 kiliovolts out of 50 Mosfet dies samples. There was only one PGA failure at 16 kilovolts and 3 failures detected at 20 kilovolts. However, using the same instrument with a 1 oz. electrode, there were no failed PGA's at or below 20 kilovolts for the Cryovac EPD-512 film. All of the Mosfet IC dies had a HBM ESD sensitivity of approximately 250 volts.

Drop Tests Results for Lead Inspection Due to Coplanarity:
Four (4') ft. drop tests were conducted on both, shrink wrapped and bandstrapped trays, to determine the number of defected devices. Drops are performed to simulate lead damage introduced to devices during shipping transitions. A drop tested package requires all packaging items (plastic bags, cardboard sheets, form end caps, etc.) and undergoes ten drops (1 corner, 4 edges, and 5 sides) per box. Coplanarity inspections are performed before and after each drop to quantify the amount of lead damage. In comparing the bandstrapped and shrink wrapped packages, the following drop test data were calculated. Subsequent drop tests are being conducted in pursuit of greater yields.
