ESD ESD BASICS BASICS Basic Concepts in ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) Copyright 2005 DESCO INDUSTRIES INC. 9/05 Introduction ESD Control Training Per ANSI/ESD S20.20 Training

Plan Requirement, "Initial and recurrent ESD awareness and prevention training shall be provided to all personnel Safety Safety First - Concern WHEN Working Around High Voltage As important as ESD control is, it is of secondary importance compared to employee safety When working with voltages over 250 VAC, ESD personnel grounding should not be used including Wrist Straps, ESD Footwear & Garments

Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) and other safety protection should be considered wherever personnel might come into contact with electrical sources. Introduction The written ESD Control Plan should be in accordance with ANSI/ESD S20.20 100 volt Human Body Model limit as a large majority of the ESD products greater than 100 volt sensitivity ESD Association wrote commercial version of MIL-STD1686 for US Department of Defense which has adopted it ESD training should be repeated as specified in the companys written ESD Control Plan

Quizzes in Awareness Guide could be objective evaluation technique to ensure trainee comprehension and training adequacy. Static Electricity OR Electrostatic Charge Defined as Electric charge at rest All Materials Tribocharge ElectroStatic Charge Generation or Tribocharging When 2 Surfaces in Contact then Separate Some Atom Electrons Move Causing Imbalance All Materials Tribocharge ElectroStatic Charge Generation: One Surface Has Positive Charge & One Surface Has Negative Charge Radio static Build up charge walking on carpet, sliding across car seat When weather is cold and dry Problem when moves

Charge Generation or Tribocharging When two materials make contact and are then separated, a transfer of electrons from one material to the other may take place. The amount of static electricity generated depends upon the materials subjected to contact or separation, friction, the area of contact or separation, and the relative humidity of the environment. At lower relative humidity, as the environment is drier, charge generation will increase significantly. Common plastics generally will create the greatest static charges.

ESD ESD or or ElectroStatic ElectroStatic Discharge Discharge Charges Seek Balance Discharge is Rapid Creating Heat If two items are at different electrostatic charge levels, as they

approach one another, a spark or Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can occur. This rapid, spontaneous transfer of electrostatic charge can generate heat and melt circuitry in electronic components. Examples Of Electrostatic Discharge or ESD Lightning

Zap from a door There are innumerable ESD events occurring which you do not see or feel. ESD is the hidden enemy in a high tech manufacturing environment.

Two Two Types Types of of Materials Materials Conductors Conductors Electrical Current Flows Easily So Can be Grounded Examples: metals, carbon and people (due to impurities the human body's sweat layer) Materials that are called dissipative are

conductors, able to remove electrostatic charges to ground. The resistance of dissipative materials is the higher portion of the conductive range. Two Two Types Types of of Materials Materials Insulators Insulators Insulators or Non-Conductors

Electrical Current Does Not Flow Easily So Cannot be Grounded Example: Plastics, glass, and dry air Insulators like this plastic cup will hold the charge and cannot be grounded and "conduct" the charge away. Typical Typical ElectroStatic

ElectroStatic Voltages Voltages Walking across a carpet: 1,500 - 35,000 volts Walking over untreated vinyl floor: 250 - 12,000 volts Vinyl envelope used for work instructions: 600 - 7,000 volts Worker at a bench: 700 - 6,000 volts Unwinding regular tape:

9,000 - 15,000 volts Higher number is generated at low humidity Costly Costly Effects Effects Of Of ESD ESD People Discharge Frequently But to Feel a Discharge it must be about 2,000 volts ESD ESD That That aa Person Person Cant Cant Feel Feel Can Can Easily Easily Damage Damage Electronic Electronic Components

Components Even less than100 volts might damage a component! ESD is The Hidden Enemy Consider all electronic components ESD sensitive Program may identify classification of sensitivity to ESD damage Newer electronic components can have reduced width

of circuits and microscopic spacing of insulators within them, increasing their sensitivity to ESD ESD damage cannot be seen by the naked eye Optical photo of a large Integrated Circuit which has experienced ESD damage to the pin noted by the arrow.

Overlying glassivation has been removed and the surface decorated to show the ESD damage at 5,000 times magnification in this scanning electron micrograph.

Catastrophic Failures Inspection is able to detect failure Latent Defect Component wounded but Inspection passes as good

Latent Defects More Costly Sub Assembly passes inspection Assembly passes inspection Product passes inspection Works a while for customer Then Upsets & Mysterious Problems More Returns More Warranty Costs Lower Customer Satisfaction

Repair Costs Increase if Failure Detected Later One study indicated the repair cost to be: $10 Device $10 Device in board - $100 $10 Device in board and in system - $1,000 $10 Device and system fails - $10,000 Catastrophic failures are detected during inspection but components with latent defects pass as good Latent Defects

Most Frustrating Pass inspection as good May fail later Cause equipment down time Costly field repair work Adversely impacting customer satisfaction Hidden Enemy ESD damage may occur Cannot be felt Cannot be seen Not detected through normal inspection procedures

Like Germs, ESD Is The Hidden Enemy erilization in medicine Control Germs Control ESD You would never consider having surgery in a contaminated operating room, you should never handle electronic assemblies without taking adequate protective measures against ESD The Prerequisites of ESD Control Identify ESD Protected Area Identify ESD sensitive items Provide ESD control training The Basics Of ESD Control Ground Conductors Remove or Neutralize

Ground ESD floor mats via ground cord to equipment ground Clean Using Only ESD Cleaners Dissipative WorkSurfaces You should be aware of the type of work surfaces

and flooring materials used by your company Be sure to keep your work surface clean, and follow the maintenance procedures recommended by the manufacturer Regular cleaners contain silicone, an insulator Neutralize Insulators Via Ionization Insulators Cannot be grounded Ionizer air flow floods area with Ions - Neutralizing Charge Direct Ionizer Air Flow to ESD Sensitive Items Ionizers produce positively and negatively charged ions Fans airflow to cover the work area Ionization can reduce static charges on an insulator or isolated conductors Types of Ionizers Bench Top Ionizers Neutralizing Air Nozzles / Hand Gun

Overhead Ionizers Neutralize charges on insulators and isolated conductors Ionizers require periodic cleaning of emitter pins If out of balance (or voltage offset) they can charge items Shield ESD Sensitive Items Outside Protected Area Faraday Cage effect charges to be conducted on surface of the conductor.

Since like charges repel, charges will rest on the exterior. Charges Kept on Outside of Package: Closed Metallized Shielding Bag Covered In-plant Handler ESD Packaging Electrostatic discharge shield "A barrier or enclosure that limits the passage of current and attenuates an electromagnetic field resulting from an

electrostatic discharge." ESD bags should be closed and containers have lids in place ESD packaging only be opened at an ESD protective workstation by properly grounded personnel. ESD Protected Workstations An ESD protective workstation is an area that has been established to effectively control electrostatic charges. Grounding all conductors (including people)
