Several ANSI ESD Standards to be Updated

Released 08.28.2015 - San Francisco, CA

The EOS/ESD Association (ESDA) (Rome, NY), a professional voluntary association devoted to setting standards and techniques for avoiding electrostatic discharge, has revised four of its standards documents and is issuing a new report arguing that machine model for IC qualification be abandoned, according to an email dated Aug. 27. 

Four of the documents are revisions, one is new:

  • ANSI/ESD STM11.11-2015, ESD Association Standard Test Method for Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items - Surface Resistance Measurement of Static Dissipative Planar Materials (revision of ANSI/ESD STM11.11-2006): Provides a measurement procedure to determine the surface resistance of planar materials in the static dissipative range.

  • ANSI/ESD STM11.12-2015, ESD Association Standard Test Method for Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items - Volume Resistance Measurement of Static Dissipative Planar Materials (revision of ANSI/ESD STM11.12-2006): Provides test methods for measuring the volume resistance of static dissipative planar materials used in the packaging of ESD sensitive devices and components.

  • ANSI/ESD STM11.13-2015, ESD Association Standard Test Method for Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items - Two-Point Resistance Measurement (revision of ANSI/ESD STM11.13-2000): Measures the resistance between two points on a material's surface without consideration of the material's means of achieving conductivity. This test method was established for measuring resistance where the concentric ring electrodes of ANSI/ESD STM11.11 cannot be used.

  • ANSI/ESD STM97.1-2015, ESD Association Standard Test Method for the Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items - Footwear/Flooring System - Resistance Measurement in Combination with a Person (revision of ANSI/ESD STM97.1-2006): Provides test methods for measuring the electrical system resistance of a person wearing static control footwear while standing on a floor sample or installed floor.

  • New: ESDA/JEDEC JTR5.2-01-15, ESDA/JEDEC Joint Technical Report for Discontinuing Use of the Machine Model for Device ESD Qualification.  This document is a new document. Provides the necessary technical arguments for strongly recommending no further use of machine model for IC qualification. According to the 

All documents cost $145.00 for a hard copy ($115.00 member price); $135.00 for a PDF ($105.00 for members), except the new document (ESDA/JEDEC JTRS.2-01-15, which is $17.50 for a hard copy (members pay $10.00), a PDF is available only as a complimentary download to members.

Founded in 1982 and now with over 2,000 members, ESDA's goal is to expand awareness of electrostatic discharge through standards, educational programs, local chapters, publications, tutorials, certification, and symposia.
