What does ESD mean? Definition All electronic components are equipped with high–integrated modules or components. Conditioned by their technology, these electronic components are extremely sensitive to overvoltages and therefore to discharges of static electricity. The short term ESD has been adopted for these Electrostatic Sensitive Devices/ assemblies.
Electrostatic charging Charging Anyone who is not conductively connected to the electrical potential of their surroundings can be electrostatically charged. The maximum electrostatic voltage values which an operator can be charged with when contacting the materials stated in the illustration are shown in Fig. A–1. These values correspond to the specifications of IEC 801–2.
Basic protective measures against discharge of static electricity Ensuring a good ground connection When handling electrostatic sensitive devices, ensure that your person, the workplace and packaging are grounded. In this manner you avoid static charge. Avoid direct contact As a general principle, only touch electrostatic sensitive devices when this is unavoidable (e.g.
