Patent Number: 6,251,219

Title: Method and apparatus for use in assembling electronic devices

Abstract: A fixture holds a plurality of circuit components backside up in a substantially coplanar relationship in the same spatial relationship between the circuit components that the components are intended to have a circuit board or substrate as part of an electronic device. An adhesive applying device, such as a screen printer, applies adhesive to the backside of each circuit component. The circuit components may then be transferred onto a substrate by the use of a piston transfer device, for instance. Preferably, all the circuit components are transferred substantially simultaneously.
