Description

Keywords: data book, PSMC, Jedec, J-STD-020, MSL, levels, databook

Where can I find moisture sensitivity information in general, and for a specific device?

Solution

1

Information on Moisture Sensitivity Level (MSL) (as specified by JEDEC J-STD-020)

MSL is a number between 1 and 7. Packages with a Level 1 MSL rating are the least sensitive to moisture, and packages with larger numbers are relatively more sensitive to moisture.

To determine factory floor life and soak requirements, and for more information on moisture sensitivity, refer to Chapter 6 of the Device Package User Guide (UG112):
