The purpose of this paper is to report on a mode of failure observed during the life testing of epoxy-glass printed-circuit boards (PCB). Upon exposure to elevated humidity, circuits maintained under a dc bias have been observed(I-3) to develop either permanent or intermittent loss of insulation resistance. Visual examination has shown that this characteristic electrical behavior is accompanied by the formation of growths emanating from the positively biased conductors (anodes) and growing… CONTINUE READING
