FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60749-20 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 47:

Semiconductor devices.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2008. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:

a) incorporation of a technical corrigendum to IEC 60749-20:2008 (second edition );

b) inclusion of new Clause 3;
c) inclusion of explanatory notes.

4 General description

Package cracking and electrical failure in plastic encapsulated SMDs can result when

soldering heat raises the vapour pressure of moisture which has been absorbed into SMDs

during storage. These problems are assessed. In this test method, SMDs are evaluated for

heat resistance after being soaked in an environment which simulates moisture being

absorbed while under storage in a warehouse or dry pack. Moisture sensitivity level (MSL)

ratings generated by this document are utilized to determine the soak conditions for

preconditioning in accordance with IEC 60749-30.
5 Test apparatus and materials
5.1 Humidity chamber

The humidity chamber shall provide an environment complying with the temperature and

relative humidity defined in 6.3.

– 8 – IEC 60749-20:2020 © IEC 2020
5.2 Reflow soldering apparatus

The infrared convection, the convection and the vapour-phase reflow soldering apparatus

shall provide temperature profiles complying with the conditions of soldering heat defined in

6.4.2 and 6.4.3. The settings of the reflow soldering apparatus shall be adjusted by

temperature profiling of the top surface of the specimen while it is undergoing the soldering

heat process, measured as shown in Figure 1.
The adhesive agent or thin tape should have good thermal conductivity.
Figure 1 – Method of measuring the temperature profile of a specimen
5.3 Holder

Unless otherwise detailed in the relevant specification, any board material, such as epoxy

fibreglass or polyimide, may be used for the holder. The specimen shall be placed on the

holder by the usual means and in a position as shown in Figure 1. If the position of the

specimen, as shown in Figure 1, necessitates changing the shape of terminations and results

in subsequent electrical measurement anomalies, a position that avoids changing the shape

of terminations may be chosen, and this shall be specified in the relevant specification.

5.4 Wave-soldering apparatus

The wave-soldering apparatus shall comply with conditions given in 6.4.4. Molten solder shall

usually be flowed.
5.5 Solvent for vapour-phase reflow soldering
Perfluorocarbon (perfluoroisobutylene) shall be used.
5.6 Flux

Unless otherwise detailed in the relevant specification, the flux shall consist of 25 % by weight

of colophony in 75 % by weight of isopropyl alcohol, both as specified in Annex B of

IEC 60068-2-20:2008.
5.7 Solder

A solder of the composition as specified in Table 1 of IEC 60068-2-20:2008 shall be used.

6 Procedure
6.1 Initial measurements
6.1.1 Visual inspection

Visual inspection, as specified in IEC 60749-3, shall be performed before the test. Special

attention shall be paid to external cracks and swelling, which will be looked for under a

magnification of 40X.
6.1.2 Electrical measurement
Electrical testing shall be performed as required by the relevant specification.
6.1.3 Internal inspection by acoustic tomography

Unless otherwise detailed in the relevant specification, internal cracks and delamination in the

specimen shall be inspected by acoustic tomography in accordance with IEC 60749-35.

6.2 Drying

Unless otherwise detailed in the relevant specification, the specimen shall be baked at

125 °C ± 5 °C for at least 24 h.

NOTE 1 This time/temperature is modified if desorption data on the particular device under test shows that a

different condition is required to obtain a "dry" package when starting in the wet condition for 85 °C/85 % RH.

NOTE 2 If a bake test is interrupted for more than 15 min, then the total time of the interruption is excluded from

the bake time. The interruption time is taken into account (if no greater than 1 h) then re-incorporated to ensure a

minimum of 24 h. For instance, if the interruption was 45 min, then the total bake test time would be 24 h and

45 min. If greater than 1 h the bake is restarted for a full 24 h.
6.3 Moisture soak
6.3.1 General

Unless otherwise detailed in the relevant specification, moisture soak conditions shall be

selected on the basis of the packing method of the specimen (see A.1.1, Annex A). If baking

the specimen before soldering is detailed in the relevant specification, the specimen shall be

baked instead of being subjected to moisture soak.
6.3.2 Conditions for non-dry-packed SMDs

The moisture soak condition shall be selected from Table 1, in accordance with the

permissible limit of actual storage (see A.1.2.1).
