The apparatus shown here allows statistical sample sizes of electronic components to be exposed to high temperature (100-200 degrees C) controlled humidity environments of various gaseous natures with electrical bias applied. Because the system is run at high temperature and pressure, there is a great driving force to accelerated diffusion, permeation and chemical rate kinetics, resulting in a shortened product qualification cycle.
