ESD Protection

The electronic industry has placed a growing emphasis on reliability and quality assurance. ESD damage to Electrostatic Discharge Sensitive Devices (ESDS)  can be minimized by using ESD control measures.

  • Handle electrostatic discharge sensitive devices (ESDS) only in an ESD protected area (EPA)
  • Avoid electrostatic potential differences and electrostatic discharges
  • Use wrist straps, approved footwear and floor combination for personnel grounding
  • Wear properly fastened dissipative garments
  • Avoid electrostatic generating materials (normal PE, PVC, PS, etc.) inside an EPA
  • Do not expose ESDS to electrostatic fields > 100V / cm (10 kV/m) !
  • Use only approved ESD protective packaging materials
  • Awareness, personnel training, continuous monitoring are essential for maintaining a static control program
