FAQ

SAW Devices

What is the specification of the electrostatic withstand voltage,
or ESD (Electro-
Static Discharge) resistance?

It is 50 volts or more. (Cumulative failure rate: 10%)

What is the maximum input power?

The standard specification is +29dBm (at 50℃ for 5000 hours) with CW (Continuous Wave) at the transmitting side and Tx filter of SAW duplexers. For others, it is CW+13dBm (at 50℃ for 5000 hours).

What is MSL (Moisture Sensitivity Level) for SAW devices?

The MSL is 3 for all our SAW device products. (Needed damp proof packing)

What are storage conditions for SAW devices?
  1. Not opened damp proof packing:Please store them under the normal temperature and humidity (-10 to +40℃ and 30 to 85% RH). As for products that have been stored over one year since they were shipped, their solderability could be deteriorated, so please be sure to evaluate their solderability before use them.
  2. Unpacked damp proof packing: After opening, please make sure to mount them within 168 hours in an environment of 5 to 30℃ and 60% RH or less.
What are the baking conditions of the SAW devices stored exceeding
the storage period after opening the damp proof package?
  1. Dry the packed and taped products one time for 10±1 hours at 60±2℃ and 10% RH or less.
  2. Put the products in a heat-resistant container and dry it one time for 10±1 hours at 60±2℃ and 10% RH or less, for 8±1 hours at 70±2℃ and 10% RH or less, or for 6±1 hours at 80±2℃ and 10% RH or less.
How many time of reflows do the products go through?

We recommend up to three times.

What are other soldering conditions than reflow?

When soldering, please use a spot heater under the following conditions:
・Preheating: 150℃ +/- 10℃ for 60 seconds at minimum
・Warm air temperature: 280℃ +/- 10℃ for 30 seconds at maximum

Is it possible to use the products in a transfer molding method?

No, they are not usable. Even in the case of resin molding method, please contact us beforehand.
