The scope of this document is to:
Specify techniques to detect SC parts using electrical testing.
Provide various levels of electrical testing that can be used by the User to define test plans for detecting SC parts.
Provide minimum requirements for testing laboratories so that User/Requester can determine which test houses have the necessary capabilities. (For example: technical knowledge, equipment, procedures and protocols for performing electrical testing for verification analysis.) Note: User/Requester is defined in AS6171 General Requirements
Specify Burn-In and environmental tests. The environmental tests include Temperature Cycling for Active Devices and Thermal Shock for Passive Devices. Seal Tests are described and recommended for hermetic devices.
The following terminology is used throughout this document:
Shall = is mandatory;
Should = is recommended; and
Will = is planned (is considered to be part of a standard process).
If AS6171/7 is invoked in the contract, the base document, AS6171 General Requirements shall also apply.
