ESD Testing - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hello:

Does anyone know what the most common testing standard for ESD is? There are references to IEC, Mil-STD, JEDEC, etc., but I need to know in a nutshell what they are wand when they apply. Has anyone here had experience with ESD testing?

:-D

Hello Ed,

There are many standards for ESD testing. I work in the military sector and use MIL-STD-461. At the microchip level MIL-STD-883 defines a human body test for ESD to the chips. There are different specs and models for the European market as well. First you should look at your performance specification and statement of work for your customer's requirement. There should be a Contract Data Requirement List (CDRL) for ESD testing requirements. You should also check with your Quality department to see what method and spes they follow.

Good Luck,

RFTEJerry
