17 Jan 2024 Gel-Pack
Refers to a transport box for unpackaged semiconductor chips in the form of a plastic tray. In contrast to the waffle pack, the gel pack only consists of a large pocket containing a sticky gel. The semiconductors or components are temporarily glued to the gel with light pressure so that the chips cannot slip during transportation. They can then be removed from the gel pack manually or using an automatic placement machine. However, the storage time in gel packs is limited, as it is difficult to remove components or semiconductors from the gel pack without leaving any residue after a few days.
