Developed by Subcommittee: F01.03
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This test method applies to hermetic package leak testing to detect leaks of a broad spectrum in size with a minimum detection level equal to the sensitivity of the helium mass spectrometer equipment used in the test.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F01 on Electronics and Subcommittee F01.03 on Metallic Materials, this practice was withdrawn in May 2009 with no replacement because the committee is not aware of the need to maintain the standard. Reference to the standard will remain available, but at this time, the committee does not wish to actively maintain the standard.
1.1 This test method applies to hermetic package leak testing to detect leaks of a broad spectrum in size with a minimum detection level equal to the sensitivity of the helium mass spectrometer equipment used in the test.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
