Abstract

A carrier for articles has a main body (10) with one or more engagement means (28) for receiving one or more indicators (40, 60). The indicators (40, 60) have one or more contrasting colors compared to the color of the main body (10). The color or shape or both of the indicator provides the user with information regarding the articles, carrier or characteristics of the articles or carrier.

Description

TECHNICAL FIELD

This invention relates to carriers for objects and more particularly to the easy identification and/or orientation of such carriers during manufacturing processes. The invention has particular relevance to the semiconductor industry.

BACKGROUND ART

In the semiconductor industry semiconductor chips such as microprocessors and the like are packaged on carriers called matrix trays. The matrix trays carry a number of semiconductor chips which are passed along a production line for assembly of completed circuit boards. The matrix trays are typically injection moulded plastics having a height of about 1 cm.

The trays carry technical information relevant to the tray, the chips carried or the process, such as temperature rating, part number, date code, etc. This technical information is usually embossed on the edge of the trays, which is typically about 1 cm high. As the trays flow through the production line the following inconveniences occur:

  • 1. Difficulty in reading the embossed descriptions on tray surfaces, especially when they are stacked high. The printed information is not large enough due to the limited space on the edge of the tray. Also, the printed characters and numbers are the same colour as the tray's surfaces so there is little contrast to aid in reading them.
  • 2. Difficulty in identifying trays that house good chips as against those used to store rejected ones. When bad chips are identified and segregated by the machines during the assembly process, they are separated but housed onto the same type of trays. The same type of trays are needed as they are specifically designed to house a particular size and family type of chips.
  • 3. Difficulty in identifying different types of chips within a family that use the same body dimension of the tray. As different machines are required for handling a particular type of chip within a family, the use of the common tray makes it difficult to identify the correct chips for each machine.
  • 4. Difficulty in identifying the correct tray orientation during the machine loading. The tray must be loaded manually with a specific orientation. Although present trays come with a tiny corner chamfer on one of its corners, it is not conspicuous enough to ensure correct loading onto the machine.

It has been proposed to use coloured stickers to help differentiate certain trays from others. However, the stickers need to be removed before delivery to customers and this sometimes leaves adhesive material on the tray.

DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION

In an attempt to overcome at least some of the disadvantages of existing matrix trays, in one broad form the invention provides a carrier for supporting one or more articles, the carrier including:

    • a main body having at least one engagement means; and
    • at least one indicator means for engagement with the engagement means, the or each at least one indicator means including means to provide information visually or tactually to an observer regarding the carrier or the articles supported thereon or both.

In a preferred form, the invention is a semi conductor matrix tray having at least one removable indicator means. The indicator means may be positioned prominently along one side of the tray and be assigned different colours, shapes or numbers to indicate technical information. Preferably the colours used for the indicator means contrast with the colour of the tray adjacent the indicator means.

Preferably the indicator means slides into a receptacle on one side of the tray. Preferably the receptacle and the indicator means are shaped so that only one orientation of the indicator means relative to the receptacle is allowed. The indicator means may have a receptacle which receives a protrusion on the tray.

Preferably the indicator means includes a first part which engages in or on the edge of the tray and a second part mounted on the first part. The first part may then be made of one of a series of different colours whilst the second part may also be made of one of a series of different colours and/or shape.

One or both of the first and second parts may be of a contrasting colour to the tray or the same colour. The second part may partially or totally obscure the first part when the indicator is mounted on the tray.

More than one indicator may be used on the one tray.

The invention will be more easily understood from the following non limiting description of a preferred embodiment and the drawings in which:

BEST MODE OF CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION

Referring to FIGS. 1 to 5 there is shown a matrix tray 10 configured to carry semiconductor chips in a 5×2 array. Each chip is carried in a receptacle 12. The tray 10 carries on its front side 14 temperature rating information 16 and a part number 18. Its rear side 20 also carries a part number 22 and other information 24. This information is moulded into the plastics of the tray in manufacture and so is inherently difficult to read. In the prior art this is all that is available for operators to identify the trays, their content and other information relevant to the manufacturing process.

In the tray of FIGS. 1 to 5 one end 26 is provided with a slot 28 in its end wall 30 (see FIGS. 4 and 5). This slot is generally rectangular in shape having vertical sides 32 and horizontal base 34. The sides 32 are angled at about 60° to the end wall 30 so the width of the front of the slot 28 is less than the width at its rear. The base 34 has a semicircular protrusion 36 extending upwards. The protrusion is located off centre of the slot 28.

Referring to FIGS. 6 to 9 there is shown a rider 40 for insertion into the slot 28 of the tray 10. The rider 40 is generally rectangular and has the same overall width, depth and height as the slot 28. The ends 42 of the rider are also angled at 60° so that the rider may be slid into the slot 28. It will be appreciated that the angling of the ends of the slot 28 and rider 40 mean that the rider is trapped in the slot 28 and cannot fall out of the front of the recess. The bottom of the ends is chamfered at 46 to aid insertion of the rider into slot 28. The base of the rear face is also preferably chamfered at 49 to aid insertion.

The bottom edge 44 of the rider has a semicircular recess 48 which corresponds to the protrusion 36 in the slot 28. The protrusion 36 and recess 48 prevent the rider being fully inserted into the slot 28 upside down.

Protruding from the front face 50 of the rider are three identical circular protrusions 52a, b and c. These protrusions 52 are preferably equally spaced from each other with the middle protrusion 52b located at the horizontal centre of the rider. Preferably the protrusion 52 extend horizontally along a line slightly below the vertical centre of the rider. The thickness of the main portion of the rider is equal to that of the slot 28, so the protrusions 52 extend proud of the end wall 30.

Referring to FIGS. 10 to 12 there is shown a stud 60 for use with the rider 40. The stud 60 is generally rectangular with a plural front surface 62. The rear surface 64 has a rectangular recess 66 therein defined by peripheral walls 68 and side walls 74. Located in the centre of this recess 66 and extending from the base surface 70 toward the rear surface 64 is a circular pin 72. Preferably this pin extends just short of the rear surface 66.

The width between the side peripheral walls 74 and the distance between the pin 72 and the end walls is very slightly less than the diameter of the pins 52 of the rider 40 so that the stud may be mounted on the rider 40 by pressing the stud onto two of the pins 52 in an interference fit. This interference fit is preferably loose enough to enable easy separation and assembly of the two parts but tight enough to prevent accidental separation. The rider may be placed on the centre pin 52b and left hand pin 52a or the centre pin 52b and right hand pin 52c. Whilst a “two pin” stud has been shown, it will be appreciated that a “three-pin” stud which obscures all of the rider 40 may be used.

Because the rider has the same depth as the slot 28, the stud sits proud of the end wall. Further, because the protrusions 52 sit slightly below the centre-line of the rider, the bottom of the stud overlaps the end wall 30. The stud also overlaps the edge of the end wall, due to the angling of the ends of the slot 28. This overlapping of the end wall is neither essential or disadvantageous. If desired, the rider and stud may be made so that the stud overlaps the end wall 30 to a greater extent or not at all.

The tray 10, rider 40 and stud 60 can be manufactured either of low or high temperature material, which is able to withstand baking temperatures from 0 degrees to 200 degrees Celsius. For low temperature materials ABS plastics can be used. For high temperature materials, preferably compounded fiber plastics are used. Preferably the parts are manufactured in different colours to provide immediate visual information to the user. Preferably, the same material is used for all components to avoid problems with different rates of thermal expansion, but this is not essential. As examples, the tray may be manufactured of a blue plastics material with the rider being manufactured in red, yellow and orange colours. The stud may be manufactured in white and blue colours. This gives six different rider/stud colour combinations.

The colour of the rider may be used to indicate a temperature rating whilst the colour of the stud could be used to indicate the status of the chips to be housed. One colour could mean good chips and another colour could mean reject chips requiring further analysis.

A second rider/stud may be provided to indicate the specific chip in a family of chips which is carried by the tray. Additional recesses and indicators as needed fall within the scope of the invention.

The use of contrasting colours also aids the user in both segregating different “types” of trays from each other but also aids in corrected alignment. For example, a yellow rider with a red 2 pin stud may be provided. The user will be educated to align the trays with the rider/stud combination at one end with the exposed part of the yellow rider to the right of the red stud.

It will be appreciated that the rider may be provided with more than three pins. For example, a four pin rider will allow a “two pin” stud to be placed centrally, with a pin exposed on either side or to be located to one side, with two pins exposed on either the left or right. Use of a three pin stud would allow one or two pins to be exposed, to either the left or right side of the stud. Thus the number and position of the exposed pins may be used in sorting and alignment, as well as the colours of the pin and stud.

Whilst the engagement of the rider with the tray in the preferred form of the invention utilises a recess into which the rider slides, the invention is not limited to this specific format. For example, the same pin/recess interference fit type engagement may be utilised to attach the rider to the tray.

It will be appreciated that many modifications may be made to the embodiment described herein to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention.
