This document is applicable for the following series:

Embossed tape and reel is used for transporting and storing electronic components. The packing is designed to feed components into automatic pick-and-place machines for surface mounting on PCBs. The complete configuration consists of a carrier tape with pockets holding the individual components that are sealed by a cover tape.

The tape and reel configurations of the nRF24, nRF51, nRF52, and nRF8000 series products meet the current industry standards described in EIA-481: 8 mm through 200 mm Embossed Carrier Taping and 8 mm through 200 mm Punched Carrier Taping of Surface Mount Components for Automatic Handling. The loaded reels are shipped with a Humidity Indicator Card (HIC) and a bag of desiccant gel according to the JEDEC standard JSTD-033.
