ESDA Online Academy Course - FC361: Ultra-sensitive (Class 0) Devices: ESD Controls and Auditing Measurements

01aug11:00 amESDA Online Academy Course - FC361: Ultra-sensitive (Class 0) Devices: ESD Controls and Auditing Measurements11:00 am(GMT-04:00) Event Type Online Course

Event Details

Advanced ESD controls and auditing measurements for CDM & Class 0 (ultra-sensitive) devices and circuit boards are not well known and there are many technical and strategic pitfalls that must be avoided. Industry definitions (threshold levels) for Class 0 will be described and the history of their use will be reviewed. The Class 0 category is broken down into sub-categories of increasing risk.

Students will learn how to make valid measurements, avoid common pitfalls, and how to use this data to successfully handle Class 0 sensitivities.  Advanced measurements will be described including event detection and high speed current measurements. Students will learn when each measurement type is useful. Compelling case studies will illustrate these techniques and the success they produce. ESD Control procedures for Class 0 manufacturing require customization, attention to detail and a full understanding of the technology. Thus, each company will need to develop a Class 0 ESD subject matter expert (SME) to ensure the correct and cost effective counter measures are taken. SOPs (special operating procedures) developed by SMEs will be discussed that have proven to virtually eliminate Class 0 failures. This tutorial will be highly interactive with live demonstrations, in-plant photographs, and video clips. Students will be encouraged to ask questions and actively participate in the discussions. References to technical literature on ultra-sensitive devices will be included.
