For information regarding the Academia Committee, please contact us at


The Academia committee of the EOS/ESD Association, Inc. is working to expand university education in ESD technology across the globe and to encourage and promote research in critical areas of ESD development. We aim to get a greater exposure of ESD Technology worldwide to have an increased student population as EOS/ESD Symposium contributors, EOS/ESD Association members, and provide a mentor process to students for linkage with industry opportunities.

Capstone Project Summaries

This project is to design and build a low-cost latch-up test-bench for measurement that allows students to gain a comprehensive understanding of Latch-up phenomenon in CMOS technology. The project also involves the development of a low-cost PCB board for the Latch-up test-bench.


The 2-semester project started in September 2023 in Arkansas University (host by Zhong Chen) with 3 senior bachelor students.

Weekly meetings with industrial mentors. 

Possibility of the extension as a basic topic in the experiment course of electronics for engineering students
