ESD Association Technical Report for the Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items – Human Metal Model (HMM)
This standard practice defines how devices and components are to be tested if the IEC 61000-4-2 waveform is used. The ESDA subcommittee 5.6 Device Testing (HMM) has written a standard practice document describing the stressing of electrical components with the IEC 61000-4-2 stress waveform. The standard practice is intended as an initial
document to serve the industrys demand for an ESD system level related stress of components. The purpose of this report is to provide the rationale for the HMM standard practice document and its usefulness to the industry.
