Understanding advanced ESD methods and problems will help employees make important work contributions by safeguarding products and be invaluable for ones knowledgebase, adding to your work skills. This course is designed to expand commonsense ESD knowledge to less well known issues that are key today for improving production yield and product design lifetime through improvements in ESD investigations, audit practices, fixture design, and circuitry protection. Today, simple ESD protection methods like wearing wrist straps and using ionization are not enough to protect products. Staying abreast of advanced ESD issues can avoid extensive problems in industry. This course will challenge students of all levels and is a must for ESD engineering design, production test, and product management personnel. Don’t get zapped, get protected!
Topics Covered: ESD BASIC AND ADVANCED FUNDAMENTALS – FIXTURE & AUTOHANDLER PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT ESD ANALYSIS & DESIGN – ESD CIRCUIT DESIGN AND PROTECTION METHODS – ADVANCED ESD AUDIT METHODS – ESD GENERAL INFORMATION.
