IEC 60749-18:2019 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is not an official document, it 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 60749-18:2019 provides a test procedure for defining requirements for testing packaged semiconductor integrated circuits and discrete semiconductor devices for ionizing radiation (total dose) effects from a cobalt-60 (60Co) gamma ray source. Other suitable radiation sources can be used. This document addresses only steady-state irradiations, and is not applicable to pulse type irradiations. It is intended for military- and aerospace-related applications. It is a destructive test. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- updates to subclauses to better align the test method with MIL-STD 883J, method 1019, including the use of enhanced low dose rate sensitivity (ELDRS) testing;
- addition of a Bibliography, which includes ASTM standards relevant to this test method.
