Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 May 2019
Status: active
Page Count: 72
ICS Code (Environmental testing): 19.040
scope:

This part of IEC 60068 specifies tests for the whiskering propensity of surface finishes of electric or electronic components and mechanical parts such as punched/stamped parts (for example, jumpers, electrostatic discharge protection shields, mechanical fixations, press-fit pins and other mechanical parts used in electronic assemblies) representing the finished stage, with tin or tin-alloy finish. Changes of the physical dimensions of mould compounds, plastics and the like during the required test flow are not considered or assessed. The test methods have been developed by using a knowledge-based approach.

This document can also be used at sub-suppliers, like plating shops, stamping shops or other service providers to ensure a consistent surface quality within the supply chain.

These test methods are employed with defined acceptance criteria by a relevant component or application specification.

The tests described in this document are applicable for initial qualification, for periodic monitoring in accordance with Clause 7, and for changes of technology or manufacturing processes of existing surfaces in accordance with Clause 9.

The mating area of connectors is not covered by this test method. IEC 60512-16-21 applies for the mating areas of connectors.
