Hi Bill, You should try pre-baking any such old devices prior to using on SMT Reflow. Refering to MSL-type3 guidelines could help in your case.

I persoanlly have noticed issue with either method, only time I run into issues with trays is when they get baked at too high of temp and warp. Russ

Sirs, Please do me a favor to answer the following questions, thanks a million! 1. Will the baking of BGA or PCB cause more oxidation before the SMT process? 2. What is the acceptable Life Time of solderability at customer site? The time that the sol

It takes time for the moisture to penetrate into the body. I think the 5 years of ambient would be more the culprit than washing the boards. Especially since you are baking them after wash. Get a few of the ICs and put them loose on a board and put

I have a Polyimide board that is showing signs of de-lamination. I was wondering what pre-bake times and temperatures other people would recomend for new boards as well for boards that have been on the shelf for 8 months.
