Supposedly conformal coating prevents tin whiskers, too. I'm not convinced on either point.

Raymond,

Yes, after around serial number B066xxx (guesstimate) Tek started conformal coating their A5 assemblies.
The latest serial number on a 2465B, that I have seen, is B079xxx, from 1996.
The early B051xxx A5s had already started leaking, so the conformal coating was their solution.
