The group also reviewed and adjudicated consensus body comments on ESD WIP11.31. The document will be submitted for industry review. The committee also discussed the start of the five-year review for ANSI/ESD S11.4 and will review the document at the June virtual meeting.

Agenda items for the meeting on April 13, 1:00 - 5:00 PM PT are:

 

  1. Review of the status of documents
  2. Discussion on Industry Review of  DS541

  5. Any other old business
  6. New business

 


 

Winter 2018 Virtual Meeting
The working group adjudicated all of the standards committee vote comments on ESD WIP541, ESD WIP11.31, and ESD WIP11.13LB. All three documents will move forward for industry review. There was a discussion regarding the five-year review of ANSI/ESD S11.4. The WG will continue discussions at the April face-to-face meeting; the expectation is the document will be recommended for reaffirmation. A discussion was also held on the possible revision of ESD ADV11.2. Suggestions include re-designating the document as a technical report and adding any new methods or procedures related to triboelectric testing since 1995.

 


September 2017 Face-to-Face Meeting


 


Summer 2017 Virtual Meeting
Summary of meeting activities
The working group discussed the current status of the five year review for ANSI/ESD S541 and ANSI/ESD STM11.31. A request was made for volunteers to complete testing prior to the September meeting series related to the equipment requirements in ANSI/ESD STM11.13 to address industry concerns. A presentation was also given on a new suggested topic for the WG to explore.

 


 

April 2017 Face-to-Face Meeting
Summary of meeting activities
The working group discussed member comments on the five year review of ANSI/ESD STM11.31 – bags. A final version will be sent for review by the Technical and Advisory Support (TAS) committee before the July virtual meeting series. The working group also discussed TAS and working group member comments on ESD WIP541 - packaging. Compromises were reached on changes regarding electric field shielding. The document will be submitted for review by Technical and Advisory Support committee before the July virtual meeting series. A discussion was held on the status of other open working group documents.

Agenda items for the meeting on April 29, 2017, 1:00 – 5:00 PM MT are:
a.      Review of suggested changes to ANSI/ESD S541 – regarding explanation of the use of the term “Field Shielding” as it pertains to packaging other than bags


Winter 2017 Virtual Meeting
Summary of meeting activities

A brief history of WG11 was presented. The working group discussed TAS and working group member comments on ESD WIP11.31, Discharge Shielding – Bags. The document with changes will be circulated to the working group for review prior to the April meeting series. The working group also discussed TAS and working group member comments on ESD WIP541, Packaging. There are concerns about retaining or removing information on electric field shielding and on changing discharge shielding from <50 nJ to <20 nJ. The goal is to have the revised document circulated to working group members for review prior the April meeting series.

Agenda items for the meeting on Monday, January 30, 2017, 2:30 – 4:00 PM ET are:
a.      Review of ANSI/ESD STM11.31 Revision
b.      Review of suggested change to ANSI/ESD S541 – regarding explanation of the use of the term “Field Shielding” as it pertains to packaging other than bags
c.      Status of work regarding ANSI/ESD STM11.11 Round Robin and later review by the Ad Hoc committee


September 2016 Face-to-Face Meeting
Summary of meeting activities

The committee reviewed the issue of verification resistance for ANSI/ESD STM11.13 – Two-point probe measurements. A task team has been created to investigate changing the resistor from 1 x 109 to 1 x 1012 ohms. The working group reviewed data for a second round robin for ANSI/ESD STM11.11 – surface resistance measurements. There was a discussion about field shielding; some additional information regarding companies that reference field shielding in data sheets will be provided for review.

September 9, 2016, 1 - 5 pm PDT meeting agenda items:

  • Review of suggested edits to ANSI/ESD STM11.31/Status of Revision.
  • Discussion regarding Shielding as it involves ANSI/ESD S541 – 5 year review, although the Ad Hoc group has not gotten together yet to discuss
  •  Status of work regarding ANSI/ESD STM11.11/11.12 Round Robin and later review by the Ad Hoc committee 
  • Issues regarding 11.13 – 2- point probe upper limit and verification
  • Other discussion topics?

Summer 2016 Virtual Meeting
Summary of meeting activities
The committee reviewed minor revisions to ANSI/ESD STM11.31 during the five-year review. A discussion was held about the possibility of writing a technical report regarding the discharge shielding test method and variations that can occur in the use of the method; discussions will continue at the September meeting. The committee started a discussion about the inclusion of shielding in ANSI/ESD S541; more work is needed to show correlation between electrical resistance and shielding.

Monday, July 11, 3:00 to 4:00 pm meeting agenda items:
