Nitrogen storage – Use dry nitrogen, plastic packages may absorb up to 6% or more of their weight in moisture. After a bake out, if possible vacum pack the components in a dry nitorgen atmosphere with desicant. Note moisture gets to the IC, the passivation glass in the IC may have phosphorous in it, hence you get phosphoric acid. This is valid especially for older parts before nitrides were commonly used.

FMD-97 is published by the Reliability Analysis Center (RAC). FMD-97 is a cumulative compendium of data consisting of the FMD-91 data along with all the data collected by RAC since 1991. This new document contains approximately 50% more information than FMD-91. The scope of the document is electronic, mechanical and electromechanical parts or assemblies. FMD-97 can be ordered by calling 1-800-526-4802 or 315-339-7047. The cost is $120 (Non-US orders) and it is available in hardcopy or on CD-ROM.
