Packaged Electronic Devices. Electronic Devices are defined as any packaged electrical, electronic, electro-mechanical (EEE) item, or assemblies using such items. This standard is intended to ensure that adequate reliability is achieved for devices in user applications after long term storage. Users are encouraged to request data from suppliers to this specification that demonstrates a successful storage life requested by the user. This standard is not intended to address built-in failure mechanisms that would take place regardless of storage conditions.
Unpackaged semiconductors. Unpackaged semiconductors are semiconductor wafer or dice.
