IEC 61760-2:2021 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.
IEC 61760-2:2021 specifies 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 document 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 can cause deterioration and result in assembly problems such as poor solderability, delamination and popcorning. Cross-references for references from this edition 3 to the previous edition 2 of this document are listed in Annex X of this document.
