This document outlines the dimensions for the tape, reel, and tray packaging of components used for Nordic Semiconductor products.

This document applies to the following series:

Embossed tape, reel, and tray 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, reel, and tray configurations of the nRF24, nRF51, nRF52, nRF53, nRF8000, and nRF9160 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.
