While most companies are acutely aware of the hazards of ESD (electrostatic discharge), few are aware that the ESD QMS (Quality Management System) Strategy is equally important as the technical requirements. This is especially true for the extreme ESD sensitivities of Class 0 since the trend toward Class 0 devices is escalating rapidly. Furthermore, most companies do not know what their device sensitivities are because 90% of IC datasheets do not include CDM (Charged Device Model) Sensitivity data. The absence of this data and the lack of understanding of ESD QMS best practices have reached a critical stage.

S20.20 (ANSI/ESD S20.20) is the best industry standard available and is an excellent foundation for ESD QMS best practices programs. However, companies with advanced technologies have found they must customize the technical requirements of S20.20 and introduce sound ESD QMS practices to avoid unacceptable failure rates in the factory and field.

Join us for this interactive presentation and learn if you are at risk and how to establish a robust ESD QMS strategy. You will also learn how to obtain ESD CDM & HBM (Human Body Model) device sensitivity data as well as how to prepare for Class 0.
