Impinj is changing the Monza X-8K package symbolization to a single-line marking. This modification enables AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) equipment to more reliably identify the Pin 1 indicator for orientation and alignment purposes. Many AOI tools search for alignment indicators simultaneously at all four corners of the package. This change eliminates the presence of alpha/numeric characters close to the Pin 1 indicator which could inadvertently come into the AOI field of view, thus causing confusion with the actual Pin 1 indicator.
The new marking specification is as follows:
|MARKING SIZES AND TOLERANCES (in µm):|
|Description||Size and Tolerances (µm)|
|Pin 1 diameter||250||300||350|
|Pin 1 X placement||110||210||310|
|Pin 1 Y placement||180||280||380|
|Pin 1 indicator|
|1||Production year: Single digit marking (e.g. 9 for Year 2019)|
|2-3||Production work week (e.g. 52 for WW52)|
|4-5||Fixed marking: "X8"|
To differentiate parts with the new single-line marking from the previous version, Impinj is assigning a new ordering part number. The part number will change from IPJ-P6005-X2AT to IPJ-P6005-X2BT. Customers will continue to receive units with the current marking (IPJ-P6005-X2AT) until existing inventory is depleted. Based on the current consumption rate, the estimated transition date to the new part number will be March 2020.
