Package hermeticity testing with thermal transient measurements

András Vass-Várnai, Márta Rencz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Thermal transient testing, a well known technique for thermal characterization of IC packages (Rencz and Székely 2001) can be a suitable method for detecting hermeticity failures in packaged semiconductor and MEMS devices. In the paper this measuring technique is evaluated. Experiments were done on different measurement setups at different ambient temperature and RH levels. Based on the results, a new method for package hermeticity testing is proposed.
