Aluminum desiccant Pouch in Semiconductor Applications:

Transport and Storage of Semiconductor Devices

About Semiconductor Characteristics and Susceptibility to Moisture

Semiconductor devices are integral components of modern electronics. They exhibit exceptional electronic performance and find applications across various fields, from computing to communication, healthcare to automotive, and beyond. However, semiconductor devices possess a vulnerability—they are highly susceptible to moisture. This susceptibility arises from the nature of semiconductor materials. When exposed to humid environments, semiconductor devices can encounter several issues:

Oxidation and Corrosion:

The presence of oxygen in humid air can lead to oxidation and corrosion of the materials within semiconductor devices, impairing their performance.

Conduction Problems:

Moisture can create undesirable conductive paths between electronic components, potentially causing short circuits and compromising the functionality of the devices.

Package Integrity:

If the packaging isn’t adequately sealed, moisture may infiltrate the interior of the device, damaging internal circuits and possibly resulting in complete device failure.

Considerations for Storing and Transporting Semiconductors

When storing and transporting semiconductor devices, it’s essential to address the following concerns to prevent moisture-related damage:

Humidity Control

Humidity Control

The storage environment should maintain optimal humidity levels and avoid excessive moisture. Using humidity control equipment and hermetically sealed packaging can mitigate the effects of moisture.

Temperature Stability

Temperature Stability

It's crucial to maintain a stable temperature during storage to prevent moisture condensation on the device's surface due to extreme temperature fluctuations.

Protective Packaging

Protective Packaging

Employ moisture-proof bags, sealed containers, or desiccants to package the devices and prevent moisture ingress.
