VIRTUAL: Volatiles Control in Hermetic Electronic Components (4/23)


Instructor: Thomas Green, TJ Green Associates, LLC
Robert Lowry, Electronics Materials Consultant
Andy Hayden, Edale Consulting


This tutorial includes a basic review of the Mil Spec test methods in place to prevent moisture related failures in military and Hi Rel systems where functional component reliability is of utmost importance (e.g. IC’s, Hybrids, MEMS and sensors, Class III Medical, Optoelectronics, etc). The focus is on hermeticity testing per MIL-STD-883 TM 1014 and the latest developments and understanding of RGA (Residual Gas Analysis) per TM 1018. Hydrogen mitigation strategies and methods will also be reviewed…read more
