Course Description:

Moisture Sensitive Devices (MSDs), are becoming a critical issue in electronic assemblies because of the higher temperatures involved in lead free soldering. This new program provides valuable information on this "invisible" issue and can help to save your company time and money in preventing component malfunctions. Operators need to understand why it's important to treat MSDs with diligent care. Thus the operator will understand what are the common handling errors and avoid them.

The course will show why moisture accumulation is a problem for MSDs, then explain the materials and techniques that can be used to minimize humidity exposure in a factory environment. It also demonstrates proper handling techniques that can prevent popcorning and component failures during solder reflow.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate Proper Material Usage (first in first out)
  • Have a Clear Understanding of How to Handle MSDs
  • Understand Why Moisture Harms MSDs
  • Understand Solutions for Moisture Control and Baking MSDs
