Testing ESD Sensitivity

Views: 228 Update date: Nov 13,2017

Testing the sensitivity of components to ESD can be done in a couple of different ways. Either way, you’re determining what it takes to make a device fail when subjected to an electrostatic discharge (ESD). The two primary models for ESD testing include Human Body Model (HBM) and Charged Device Model (CDM) testing.

 

The models can simulate events; though they can’t completely mimic the entire range of potential ESD events. These two tests, HBM and CDM however have proven to be successful at reproducing more than 99% of ESD field failure signatures. Through these tests industries can –Create and quantify suitable on-chip protection .

 

This type of event generally happens in automated-manufacturing environments where machines may always stay turned on and cause electronic integrated circuits (ICs) to become charged. If the part touches a grounded conductor, the built-up storage of energy discharges. CDM discharge depends mostly on the parasitic parameters of the discharge as well as the size and type of component package.

To test, the device is placed on a field plate with the leads pointing up; then the device is charged and discharged.

 

All-Spec also carries a comprehensive range of ESD-safe, static control grounding supplies and partners with industry leaders like  SCS, Desco, Simco-Ion and more to offer the best static control products on the market.

Human Body Model (HBM) Testing

Human Body Model (HBM) testing

It doesn’t take much to cause a discharge. Walk across the floor in your socks and you’ you add an electrostatic charge to your body. After doing so, if you were to touch your finger to a lead on a ESDS device or assembly, the body could discharge and possibly cause damage to the device.

 

The oldest and most common form of testing to classify ESD sensitivity–using an ESD simulator with a special output circuit called the Human Body Model (HBM). The device is placed in a test system and contact is made through a relay matrix and the device is zapped with ESDs.
