  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group reviewed edits to ESD TR13.0-02 and plan to submit to TAS for review. After further discussion, the group decided not to proceed with a separate technical report for testing of non-AC powered handtools for highly sensitive ESD manufacturing but will include it in the current technical report if an industry need is identified.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee reviewed the current status of ESD TR13.0-02-1x and made necessary revisions. A discussion was held on the need to develop a technical report on hand tools for use with ultra-sensitive ESD device applications. Further discussion is needed to determine if there is an industry need for the document.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee discussed open questions and concerns on the new technical report ESD TR13 0-02-1X, including clamp force and surface area contact, multiple materials and resulting inconsistencies, and descriptions of tools. The group also discussed a new technical report for ultra-sensitive ESD hand tool ESD performance characterization.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee reviewed the description of cleaning procedure and solution for cleaning to address the elimination of the influence of contamination on tool handles having any effect on resistance measurements. The document is expected to be submitted for TAS review before the September meeting series. The committee reviewed a technical report on ultrasensitive ESD device non-AC powered tools that includes modifications to reflect the differences in measurement, handling, additional testing procedures and conditions.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    Presentation was given on factory evaluation of various handtools using resistance and voltage measurements. The committee reviewed TAS and working group member comments on ESD TR13.0-02 - non AC powered hand tools. A revised document is expected to be submitted to the Technical and Advisory Support committee for review prior to the July virtual meeting series. A subcommittee was formed to begin writing a technical report non ac powered hand tools used with ultra-sensitive ESD devices. An initial draft is targeted for September 2017.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee reviewed TAS comments on ESD TR13.0-02, Non AC Powered Hand Tools. A revised document is expected to be distributed to working group members for review prior to the April meeting series.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group review the Technical and Administrative Support committee feedback that the document needs to have more explanatory information to be a technical report; it is currently written more like a standard practice document. The committee will add more explanation about the need and application for each alternative test method.

     

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee continued to work on a new technical report, ESD TR13.0-02 with identified changes needed in figures to be consistent and clearer in description of test method set up as well as improvements in wording and descriptions of test procedures and foreword. The working group will continue discussing in September. A discussion was held on the interest in writing a technical report for non-powered hand tools for high sensitivity ESDS device handling.
