Baking Components - query | 11 October, 2010

Hi,

we have been baking parts like QFP's and BGA once they past MSL requirements. But now I have some SOIC's with MSL 3 Rating that needs to be baked. I wonder if I can bake them together with the PVC Antistatic Tubes. Can these tubes withstand the 125'C for at least 8 hours? Has anyone done this before?

thanks and regards

Good Afternoon,

The PVC tubes, unless marked otherwise, cannot see 125 degrees C. I have baked smaller level 3 parts at 40 degrees C for 9 days in the tube. I had tried several different temperatures but found out the the max temp for the tubes is different with each manufacturer of the tube. I remember trying to untwist the melted tube and dig the parts out. Ah, those were good times.....

Good Muck

Chris
