FC100: ESD Basics for the Program Manager


This tutorial provides the foundation material for understanding electrostatics and ESD and the role in the manufacturing and handling of ESD sensitive devices. The fundamental properties of charge, electric fields, voltage, capacitance, and current are discussed to understand key electrostatic phenomena and electrical processes. These include charge generation and decay, material properties, and induction. An overview of device failure mechanisms is presented, including how these models impact ESD control programs. Finally, the course provides an overview of ESD control procedures during handling and manufacturing and an overview of ANSI/ESD S20.20 program requirements. 

Attendees will:

  • Understand fundamental concepts necessary to manage an ESD Program.
  • Charge Generation
  • Charge Flow in Materials
  • Electrostatic Fields and Voltages
  • Static Induction
  • Learn about ESD models, test methods and failure modes 
  • Understand important material properties for CDM mitigation
  • Learn the fundamental elements of an S20.20 program
  • Discover effective techniques for demonstrating a wide range of ESD fundamentals.
