Presenter: Mumtaz Bora, pSemi



Handling of moisture sensitive packages is an ongoing learning process in volume manufacturing. Improperly handled and stored MSDs can impact yields and reliability. The presentation will cover a review of the industry standards for MSDs( J-STD-020, J-STD 033 and J-STD 075) and their applications in moisture control. PWBs used for assembly also require controlled storage and handling. Board surface finishes, storage and baking guidelines will be reviewed per the IPC 1601 standard.  Handling of MSDs from receipt to use at reflow  will be reviewed, including practical guidelines in labelling, tracking, packing , storage and supplier audits.
