FPGA Package - What Flammability and Oxygen index rating standards does Xilinx maintain for their IC packages?


What Flammability and Oxygen index rating standards does Xilinx maintain for their IC packages?


Xilinx IC packages conform to the requirements of the UL-94 standards for Flammability rating. This is a standard specified by the Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL). These requirements cover tests for flammability of plastic materials used for parts in devices and appliances. They are intended to serve as a preliminary indication of their acceptability with respect to flammability for a particular application. Per the UL-94 standard, the rating on Xilinx packages is V0.
Xilinx qualifies its IC packages for Oxygen Rating using the ASTM D2863-77 TYPE A. This standard is laid by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). ASTM D2863 is a method to determine the minimum concentration of oxygen in an oxygen/nitrogen mixture that will support a flaming burn in a plastic specimen. There is no correlation to real end use conditions. Per this test standard, the minimum concentration of oxygen/nitrogen mixture is 28%.
