EPO-TEK® Glossary Of Terms

 

M Mega
One million.
M Meter
39.37"
Material Dispersion
Dispersion resulting from the different velocities of each wavelength in a material.
Maximum Service Temperature
Highest recommended continuous use temperature based upon thermal endurance and historical data.
Melting Range
The difference between the solidus and liquidus temperature.
Mesh Porosity
The ratio of the amount of open area in a mesh versus the amount of closed area in a mesh.
Mesh Size
The number of openings per inch in a screen. For example, a 325 mesh screen has 325 openings per inch.
Metal-Core Boards
Boards built with a metallic core and an organic or inorganic insulation on either sides of the core. The core could be made of steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, or a laminate of metals (in most cases copper invar copper or copper tungsten copper). The insulation of the core is done prior to metallization.
MHz
( MegaHertz ) One million Hertz (cycles per second).
Micrometer
One millionth of a meter. Abbreviated um.
Micron
One millionth of a meter, and another term for micrometer. An easy conversion scheme is to remember that 25.4 microns=0.0254mm=0.001"=1 mil=1,000 microinches. With this formula memorized, it is simple to translate between inch and metric references.
Microsecond
One millionth of a second. Abbreviated us.
Microwatt
One millionth of a Watt. Abbreviated uW
MIL-SPEC
Military specification.
MIL-STD
Military standard.
Milhamp
One thousandth of an Amp.
Misalignment
Misregistration of the centerline of the component lead with respect to the centerline of the bonding pad on the substrate.
Mm
( Millimeter ) One thousandth of a meter.
MM
Abbreviation for multimode.
Modifier
Any ingredient added to an epoxy formulation that changes its properties.
Moisture Resistance
Having some resistance to high humidity. A moisture resistant adhesive will not be easily affected by moisture. Will not easily change its chemical and physical properties due to moisture. Should not be confused with "water proof."
Mold Flash
Plastic debris remaining on a plastic molded package after the component manufacturing process. This can occur on molded carrier ring (MCR) and plastic quad pack (PQFP) components.
Ms
( Milliseconds ) One thousandth of a second.
Multimode Fiber
An optical fiber that has a core large enough to propagate more than one mode of light The typical diameter is 62.5 micrometers.
Multimode Laser Diode
(MMLD) Synonym for Multilongitudinal mode laser.
Mv
Millivolt. One thousandth of a Volt. mW Milliwatt. One thousandth of a Watt.
