moisture sensitivity level (MSL)

The Moisture Sensitivity Level (MSL) is a factor that refers to the humidity and the time period to which semiconductor components or chips

may be exposed during storage, transport and assembly. The MSL value is a type of classification used to make a statement about the moisture exposure of electronic components and encapsulated integrated circuits

.

MSL values for the humidity limits of components

MSL values for the humidity limits of components

The value itself is given as a numerical value together with the abbreviation MSL, for example MSL-2. There are six numerical MSL values which indicate the exposure duration, the room temperature and the room humidity to which the electronic assemblies may be exposed.
