MSD Floor Life – Beware of “Studies”

Posted on Jul 25, 2018

As most assemblers know, once moisture sensitive devices (MSDs) are exposed to ambient conditions, the clock starts ticking on their floor life. Turning back time or resetting the floor life, so that parts are once again compliant with the latest J-STD-033D (just released in Q2 2018), is a function of effectively drying the parts. But beware the claims – so-called “studies” – about how this is achieved.

What’s happening in there?

Posted on May 24, 2018

It’s the things you can’t see that you have to worry about, especially in manufacturing. Wave and reflow ovens are often dynamic and any changes to the soldering process may result in lost time, yield and profit. Without visual clues, it’s almost impossible to tell if something is out of spec – unless, of course, you verify performance.
