Thermal Shock Testing

Thermal shock testing involves exposing a package or product to extreme temperatures to determine its resistance to sudden changes in temperature.

The package or product undergoes a pre-determined number of cycles during which it is exposed to extremely high temperatures and then extremely low temperatures immediately afterwards.

After the final cycle has been performed, the package or product is inspected for damage, loss of integrity and loss of performance or functionality.
The following industry standards are used in thermal shock testing:

MIL Standards:

  • MIL-STD 202
  • MIL-STD 810F
  • MIL-STD 883 - Method 1011 (Thermal Shock)

JEDEC Standards:
