AUSTIN, TX - Moisture specialist Super Dry (www.superdry.info) will feature its broad range of desiccant cabinets at this year’s SMTAI in Fort Worth. Visitors to Booth 234 will learn the process as well as financial benefits of replacing costly nitrogen for the protection of moisture sensitive components and PCBs.
The continuing miniaturization of electronics, including thinner components and new materials has made the management and treatment of moisture sensitivity an increasingly critical element of electronics product reliability. Manufacturers are being challenged to manage larger and larger volumes of parts in a controlled and traceable manner.
IPC /JEDEC-J-Std-033C identifies a maximum of 5% RH to safely store MSDs. This simply stops the clock... it does not remove moisture nor restore MSD floor life. Lead free processes, which create up to 3x the saturated vapor pressure within components, extend the challenges in eliminating the cracking, popcorning and delamination that cause field failures. Low humidity desiccant cabinets not only safely store components, they can also remove moisture and reset component floor life, while providing oxidation prevention equivalent to nitrogen at a fraction of the cost.
