Abstract : Many electronic parts such as microcircuits, discrete semiconductors, film resistors and crystals are susceptible to damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD). Comprehensive ESD control programs are required to protect these parts during manufacture, assembly, test, repair/rework, maintenance, and other handling operations. Such control programs must be implemented throughout the life cycle of the electronic parts. The intent of this training manual is to complement an ESD awareness training course which is a key part of any effective ESD control program. This manual covers topics such as: principles of static electricity, charging and discharging, prime static generators, static electrification of electrical and electronic parts, elements of an ESD control program, ESD protective materials, ESD protective equipment, packaging and marking of ESDs items, ESD in design, ESD handling precautions and procedures, and monitoring of ESD control programs.
