As new generations of integrated circuits (ICs) become more sensitive to electrostatic discharge, ESD continues to be one of the most pernicious problems facing the electronics industry. Education is essential to prevent costly failures and expensive rework.Now your electronics assembly operators can become certified as “ESD Safe” by two major electronics associations.A joint collaboration between IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries, and ESDA- the Electrostatic Discharge Association — has produced the most up-to-date, technically accurate ESD Control video training currently available to deal with the effects of shrinking geometries, increased performance requirements and lower operating voltages.Developed by top industry experts, this educational video covers static electricity generation, triboelectric charging, ESD failure models and techniques to control ESD, including personal grounding for seated and standing operations, wrist straps, controlling static charges in the work area, and proper handling, packaging and transporting of ESD sensitive devices to the S20.20 ESDA Specification.DVD menu allows you to skip over technical content that may not be applicable to your company. English subtitles are provided for the hearing-impaired and English-as-second-language students. Telly Award winner. Time: 30 minutes.
