China ESD Forum Workshop pdf
Canmax, 99 Shuangma Street, Suzhou Industrial Park, Jiangsu, Suzhou, China
This special event is the second annual, one-of-a-kind workshop/forum to bring forth the realities of ESD
requirements in light of the rapidly advancing semiconductor technologies requiring higher speeds of operations
while balanced with much improved worldwide ESD factory control at fabs and assembly areas. It is designed to
be a two-day event to bring together key customers and IC quality managers to learn and exchange information
about the current issues of ESD requirements, and facilitate all to harmonize towards common goals for product
cost savings. The event will cover both adequate background and customer application needs. Discussions will
focus on simulation and design of system-level (IEC61000-4-2) protection of the mobile phone antenna front end.
The workshop will apply the system efficient ESD design (SEED, system efficient ESD design) principles to the
on-chip and on-board co-design and demonstrate how this approach can lead to optimized system-level ESD
protection for the mobile phone antenna.
The workshop will address:
• Real ESD stress and ESD control methods
• System-level (IEC61000-4-2) testing, component level testing - proper techniques and testing procedures
• Demonstration of SEED co-design of ESD system-level protection for optimal ESD protection for RF
antennas in electronic products
• Panel discussions: ESD target of ASIC and system ESD robustness
In the panel discussion the lead ESD experts and quality managers will lay out a target roadmap of ESD,
useful for suppliers and customers in East Asia.
