Costly Controversial ESD Myths



There are several common misunderstandings and controversies that can have significant impact on costs, quality and reliability of ESD programs. These misunderstandings or "myths" result in costly unnecessary expenditures and/or a compromise of the program integrity. These same myths are often cited by skeptics who do not fully understand the physics involved. Consequently, it is important to identify and dispel these myths. 

Latency is a significant reliability consideration that is surrounded with controversy. Some experts will argue that latency is virtually non-existent while others claim that it is the dominant failure mode. Join us for this highly interactive discussion and learn about Latency as well as common myths such as: 

  • Myth: Circuit Boards are Less Sensitive to ESD than Devices

  • Myth: HBM Data Are Sufficient for Determining Device Sensitivity Levels

  • Myth: MM Is A Valid Simulation Related To Machines

  • Myth: Air Flow Causes Charging

  • Myth: Metalized or Highly Conductive Shielding Layers Are Essential

  • Myth: Humidity Control is Essential for ESD

  • Myth: Latency Failures Comprise 90% of ESD Failures
