MSD Storage Grade Cabinets Suitable for Processing and Storage of Electronic Components

XDry Brand Desiccant Dry Cabinets is the 1st auto-electronic desiccator that can maintain ultra low relative humidity of under 1%RH in the world. XDry has been the MSD storage experts in North America since introducing digitally controlled Desiccant Dry Cabinets five years ago.

XDry cabinets are designed to eliminate Moisture Sensitive Device (MSD) defects such as; micro-cracks, voids, depanaling and delamination etc. Currently more than 500 American companies, including Lockheed, General Dynamics, NASA, Intel and hundreds of others have selected XDry ‘s digitally controlled Desiccant Dry Cabinets to protect their valuable inventory.

With the use of Desiccant Dry Cabinets, potential moisture related defects of IC packages and Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) can be effectively and easily reduced or prevented.  With the introduction of lead-free processes the proper handling and care of MSD will become even more critical.

 


Applications in production

The number of opportunities for moisture related production faults can be reduced with the use of dry storage cabinets.

  • Active Devices
    Reduce moisture related damage to all types of active devices from PoP, Stacked Die, BGA, QFP, etc.
  • Passive Components and Connectors
    Prevent solder defects by reducing the potential for oxidation of leads caused by excessive moisture during storage and kitting
  • Circuit Boards
    Maintain accurate board dimensions with humidity controlled storage reducing board stretch and warp due to high moisture content
  • Ceramic and Blue Tape
    Protect substrates and base materials from high moisture content
  • Silicon Wafers
    Reduces contamination potential from particulates suspended in moisture droplets with a humidity controlled environment
  • Lead Frames & Carriers
    Controlled humidity increases the reliability of solder and wire bond points with reduced potential for oxidation
  • Fiber Optics
    Retards organic growth and maintains the condition of key fiber optics devices and components with a controlled environment.
  • Specialized Glass & Displays
    Provides a controlled environment between process steps for switchable glass (LCG) components
