If you need to avoid baking your surface mount devices (SMD) before solder reflow, storing them in proper dry packaging will be required.  A dry package typically consists of three components; an MBB, desiccant, and humidity indicator card (HIC).  To determine how dry the package should be, you need to determine your MSL (moisture sensitivity…

Grounding operators that handle ESD susceptible devices is one of the requirements for an ESD Control Plan. In fact, it is the basis of the ESD Association’s ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 Standard. Grounding the body and maintaining maximum resistance to ground (Rtg) of less than 35 megohms prevents the operator from generating more than 100 volts.  The…
