Environmental testing - Part 2-82: Tests - Test XW1: Whisker test methods for electronic and electric components

IEC 60068-2-82:2007 specifies whisker tests for electric or electronic components representing the finished stage, with tin or tin-alloy finish. However, the standard does not specify tests for whiskers that may grow as a result of external mechanical stress. This test method is employed by a relevant specification (international component or application specification) with transfer of the test severities to be applied and with defined acceptance criteria. Where tests described in this standard are considered for other components, e.g. mechanical parts as used in electrical or electronic equipment, it should be ensured that the material system and whisker growth mechanisms are comparable.

Essais d’environnement - Partie 2-82: Essais – Essai XW1: Méthodes de vérification des trichites pour les composants électroniques et électriques

La CEI 60068-2-82:2007 spécifie des essais de vérification de la présence de trichites pour les composants électriques ou électroniques qui représentent la phase de finition, avec un fini en étain ou en alliage d'étain. Toutefois, la norme ne spécifie aucun essai pour les trichites susceptibles de se développer du fait d'une contrainte mécanique externe. L'utilisation de la présente méthode d'essai relève d'une spécification correspondante (spécification de composants ou d'application internationale) avec transfert des sévérités d'essai à appliquer et avec des critères d'acceptation définis. Lorsqu'il est prévu d'effectuer les essais décrits dans la présente norme pour d'autres composants, par exemple les pièces mécaniques utilisées dans les équipements électriques ou électroniques, il convient de s'assurer que le matériau constitutif et les mécanismes de développement des trichites sont comparables.

This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2007-06-01. CENELEC members are bound to comply
with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations which stipulate the conditions for giving this European Standard
the status of a national standard without any alteration.

Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national standards may be obtained on
application to the Central Secretariat or to any CENELEC member.

This European Standard exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other
language made by translation under the responsibility of a CENELEC member into its own language and notified
to the Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions.
