What is a Safe Shelf Life for Semiconductor Components?

Quality of Stored Semiconductor Components Examined by Rochester Electronics

When long-term component storage is a requirement, it is important for customers to have confidence that properly stored components are reliable in the field. One key measure of quality and reliability is solderability.

To determine the quality of aged semiconductor components in real-world applications, Rochester Electronics has performed an analysis on solderability by using an industry-standard board mount with solder paste and reflow manufacturing process.

These independent tests confirmed that no negative effects due to component aging were found to impact the solderability of components which have been properly stored for extended periods of time.
