Automation Analysis for ESD Class 0 and CDM

January 10, 2018 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm America/New York Timezone
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
3 Forbes Rd
Lexington, MA 02421

Reliability Society and co-sponsored NE Chapter ESDA

The ESD analysis of automation equipment is complex, not well understood and often done incorrectly. The escalating use of Class 0 (ultra-sensitive) devices and high failure rates has made this analysis critically important. You will learn how to apply advanced ESD event detection test equipment for ESD Class 0, how to more readily identify sources of ESD stress within automation equipment and how to qualify automation equipment for 50 Volt CDM applications.

This presentation will be highly interactive with in-plant photographs, videos and compelling Class 0 case studies. The photographs illustrate the details of appropriate measurements and how to avoid the numerous pitfalls.


This meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 3 Forbes Road, Lexington, MA.
