Updated Trends in Charge Device Model (CDM)

As long as integrated circuits migrate to new technologies and advances are made in packaging more integrated circuit dies into a single package, the CDM challenge is going to get harder.

Low Voltage Charged Device Model (CDM) Testing at a Crossroads

Most ESD experts consider CDM testing to be the most critical ESD qualification test for modern integrated circuits. ESD control engineers need to know the charged device ESD robustness of all components passing through their manufacturing line. CDM measurements provide that knowledge.

Two Pin HBM Testing: A New Option?

Human Body Model (HBM) is the original ESD test method for semiconductor devices and is still the most widely used ESD test . This article will discuss the old, but now new Two Pin HBM Tester. Not only are the ... Read More...
