ESD Association Standard Practice for Electrostatic Discharge Sensitivity Testing – Human Metal Model (HMM) – Component Level
This document establishes a test method for stressing pins of electrical components such as integrated circuits, protection elements, or filters that will be directly connected to external ports of a system and may be subjected to a system level type ESD stress waveform. This document is not intended to prove that a component will survive stress of a specified level within a completed system or to estimate the protection level from ESD that is incorporated within a system. Variations in system design, component level packaging and the individual part response to an ESD stress make such predictions impossible with a single test. The objective of this test is to provide a baseline for characterization of ESD protection on device pins prior to incorporation of those devices or components into the completed system.
NOTE: Component testing to this procedure will not predict how the component will react to system level tests according to IEC 61000-4-2.
