Specialty Lead Frames
Specialty refers to rare or uncommon lead frame types. These type of applications require highly customized and often flexible packaging equipment. Depending on the lead frame, a manufacturer will have to design a carrier to present the lead frame itself.

Experts at Palomar Technologies are able to work
with a variety of lead frames and incorporate them into fully-automated material handling solutions. With advances in microelectronics, specialty lead frames are becoming more common as odd-form packages grow further in sophistication. In IC lead frames, photo-etching processes are often used in manufacturing—these enable quick design turns, increase package numbers, allow for things such as higher pin count and achieve greater overall yield. In high-reliability applications, such as TO CANs,
specialty lead frames are incorporated in
automated material handling systems.
