Subject: Qualification of Kostat Tray in Cypress Thailand for 16-Lead SOIC Package Description of Change: Cypress announces the qualification of Kostat KS-84052 tray to be used as in-process and shipping tray for 16-Lead SOIC package finished at Cypress Thailand (Cypress Semiconductor Thailand (Limited), 229 Moo 4 Chaeng Watthana Road, Pak Kret, Nonthaburi, 11120 Thailand). The Kostat tray is the same as the current tray with regards to critical dimensions that may affect application. It is also designed to be stackable with the current tray. There are no changes to ordering part numbers. Product datasheets remain the same and can be downloaded from the Cypress Website (www.cypress.com). Benefit of Change: This change is part of Cypress' continuous improvement to enable an alternative tray source for 16-Lead SOIC package and eliminate any future tray delivery issue. Approximate Implementation Date: This change will be effective with the date of this notification. Existing tray will be depleted before the implementation of the new tray. During the transition period, the affected part numbers will be supplied with either the current tray or new tray. No tray mixing will be allowed in one lot. Anticipated Impact: Products shipped with the new tray are completely compatible with existing product from form, fit, functional, parametric, and quality performance perspectives. Cypress also recommends that customers take this opportunity to review these changes against current application notes, system design considerations and customer environment conditions to assess impact (if any) to their application.
