Title Surface mounting technology - Part 2: Transportation and storage conditions of surface mounting devices (SMD) - Application guide
Project Number 17134
Abstract/Scope IEC 61760-2:2007 describes the transportation and storage conditions for surface mounting devices (SMDs) that are fulfilled in order to enable trouble-free processing of surface mounting devices, both active and passive (Conditions for printed boards are not taken into consideration). The object of this standard is to ensure that users of SMDs receive and store products that can be further processed (e.g. positioned, soldered) without prejudice to quality and reliability. Improper transportation and storage of SMDs may cause deterioration and result in assembly problems such as poor solderability, delamination and 'popcorning'. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1998, and constitutes a technical revision. The standard was updated and editorially revised.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
