The objective of the receiving/inspection process is to prevent detrimental
impact to both schedule and cost resulting from receiving and installing
defective components. It is recommended that the tests and inspections listed in
the Component Screening and/or Special Controls section of this document be
performed on a 100% or sample basis as indicated.
Testing of components includes but is not limited to the following
nondestructive and destructive tests and inspections.
(1) Nondestructive Tests
(2) Destructive Tests
b. Pull test on bonds, both internal and external
d. Lead solderability
e. Microscopic examination
(preferably with a scanning electron microscope).
Each lot that does not successfully pass all of the tests should be returned
to the component manufacturer with notification as to the cause for rejection.
Concurrence with and positive corrective action relative to the deficiency
should be requested/required in writing by a specific date. The test data and
manufacturer's response need to be recorded as component performance
