ESD models may be used for simulating on-chip integrated circuits or system (board) level circuits with discrete electronic components like diodes, TVS devices, and bipolar junction transistors (BJTs).
TLP ideas are helpful in understanding CDE, but it is an imperfect analogy
When electrostatic control is properly considered and implemented, there is no need to worry about electrostatic hazards in healthcare.
The answer to this question is linked with breakdown of Moore’s law and Dennard’s scaling theory.
Over the past 5 or 6 years, industry and university researchers have advanced the state of the art in system-level ESD simulation, and this article provided an overview of some of those activities.
The full application of ANSI/ESD S20.201 or IEC61340-5-12 coupled with a complete understanding of the content of the standards, will lead to a state-of-the-art ESD control program. The standards have evolved o... Read More...
Investment in knowledge and understanding may be amongst the best ESD control strategy we can make. We wouldn’t try to control our finances by magic, so why would we our ESD control program?
Will SEED (system efficient ESD design) truly get us away from the trial and error drudgery of system level ESD design?
