Guide to MSL/MSD Moisture Sensitive Devices & Control smart-e-webinar

Tuesday, 19th July 2016 2:30 – 4pm

The electronics industry is going through seismic shifts when looking at component reduction and increase power complexity in the production process, this is coupled with ever increasing demands for lower costs. One way to reduce costs is to use slightly cheaper PWBs and unsealed or cheaper components, or just buy larger volumes of existing components to achieve a more cost effective volume cost. These solutions can potentially increase the risk for moisture absorption and also potential reduce the products ability to withstand moisture absorption. This can have a disastrous effect on the long-term life of components and finished products. This presentation will cover what moisture sensitivity levels (MSL) mean and what effects they have, also what can be used to increase the lifetime of components and PWBs by improving storage and handling.

It will be useful to all people involved in the production process from purchasing, stores all the through to production engineers and test, it will cover

  • MSL definition
  • MSL testing
  • IPC and industry specifications
  • Effects of moisture on components and PWBs
  • Common defects seen in manufacture
  • How proper storage can overcome these issues
