WG 19.0 – High Reliability ESD Control Processes

Status:
Active
Working Group Chair:
Nathaniel Peachey, Qorvo, Inc.
  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group continued reviewing the working draft of ESD WIP19.1. More work will continue at the September face-to-face meeting series.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group continued reviewing the working draft of ESD WIP19.1. More work will continue at the June virtual meeting series.

     

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group provided a summary of the group’s activities for those not familiar with WG 19. There was a discussion on several edits; with particular focus on differentiating between high reliability parts that were within the ANSI/ESD S20.20 limits and those that were below these limits. Recommendations for additional edits will be further discussed at the April meeting series. There will also be a change of leadership with a new WG chair being appointed at the April meeting series.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group continued discussing a new document for high reliability ESD control programs. The document will describe how to set up a high reliability program instead of providing a one size fits all proscriptive program.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group reviewed changes to the current document based on discussions at the April face-to-face meeting. Several additional changes were suggested including removing table 2, including verbiage about conductive and dissipative worksurfaces, and clarification on isolated conductors. The document is expected to be submitted for TAS review before the September meeting series.

     

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group continued discussing a new document on high reliability. A discussion was held on the use of humidity control to assist in ESD control. This discussion remains in the document but there are no limits listed even as suggestions in the body of the document.  Changes were made based on a discussion about dissipative and conductive work surfaces.

     

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The working group reviewed sections of ESD WIP19.1, High Reliability. Attendees of the meeting will supply examples of compliance verification interval periods to support the addition of a chart that shows what is “typical” for companies that work with high reliability components.

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee discussed the need and purpose for a document on high reliability ESD control processes.

     

     

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    A draft of the new standard practice document currently in development was presented. The committee began revisions to the document and will continue to review and revise during the September meeting.

     

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    This working group has been renamed WG19 High-Reliability ESD Control Processes. The committee will be building on the work done on ESD TR19.1 to develop a document addressing the need for a “best practices” document for high-reliability ESD control processes. This need is broader than just the aerospace industry and thus this document will define and discuss the industry practices related to high-reliability ESD process control. The document is expected to give some additional guidance and recommendations above those listed in ANSI/ESD S20.20 to reduce risk in the manufacture and handling of parts that require an increased level of reliability. 

  • Summary of meeting activities:

    The committee adjudicated comments and a clean version of the document will be sent to the committee for another review.
