Cypress announces a change in the package top-marking for the Standard IoT WLCSP packages. Following are the details of changes. 1) Add Wafer ID Number to the existing marking format to improve unit traceability. 2) Change die location format from "CC-RR" to "CCC-RRR" for some of the packages. 3) Change Assembly lot number from 6 digits to 5 digits for some of the packages. The full details of the marking change for each package is shown in the attached "IoT WLCSP Marking Change" document. This is a top marking change only. There are no changes to the assembly process, product specifications and ordering part numbers. Product datasheets remain the same and can be downloaded from the Cypress Website (www.cypress.com).
