Alternative Drying Solution Replacing Traditional Methods

Moisture sensitivity in Surface Mount Technology (SMT) is a constant problem as the industry utilizes high temperature reflow process. Many serious manufacturing defects and failures may not show up until the product is in the field are resulted from improper storage and handling of moisture sensitive components and PCBs during the assembly process. Without proper moisture control, field failures will occur. These are important factors for manufacturing industries where product reliability must be tightly controlled such as automotive, defense, medical devices, aeronautics & aviation industries.
