Mitigating Corrosion of Electronics
The inability to identify significant deterioration in a systematic fashion hinders the development of cost-effective mitigation strategies.
Electronic components drive or control almost every important piece of equipment utilized within industry and the military marketplace. Often during acquisition of this equipment, the ability of the “brains” of the equipment to withstand the environment on its own accord is overlooked in lieu of the piece of equipment as a whole. Additionally as technology advances, new electronic systems are being embedded in older assets that were not designed to enclose such systems.
Where identifiable, electronics corrosion appears consistently as a top-ten cost of corrosion item. Indeed, the costs may still be under-reported as the root cause specifically for microelectronic equipment failures may not be recognized. “Microelectronics” herein refers to Printed Circuit Board Assemblies (PCBA) used in computing, sensing, and control devices.
The inability to identify significant deterioration in a systematic fashion hinders the development of cost-effective mitigation strategies. This includes associating failure with corrosion and relating the failure over time to the component design and operating environment. These details need to be developed to best address the problems.
