Scope and object
This part of IEC 60068 provides test methods applicable to surface mounting devices (SMDs) made of glass or sintered materials such as capacitors, resistors and inductors incorporating ferrites. Two test methods exist: body strength and impact shock.
The object of both tests is to evaluate the mechanical stresses applied to SMDs during and after mounting; these tests look at different mechanical stresses. The relevant component specification shall specify which test method or methods are applicable.
