Air Ionization for Class 0 and S20.20 Applications

Time: TBA Eastern

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Arnold Steinman M.S.E.E., Dangelmayer Associates, LLC

Fee: Complimentary

Abstract
Air ionization is used as part of a complete static control program to deal with charge on isolated conductors, insulating materials, and moving objects that cannot be grounded. Air ionization can neutralize the charge on these insulated and isolated objects. This webinar will present the information needed to use ionizers to solve problems caused by static charge. The webinar will first examine the fundamental operating principles of ionizers and then discuss the major types of ionization technologies. Selection criteria for ionizer applications and performance test methods will be described. Practical information for applying ionizers and the limitations of ionizer use will be illustrated. The use and availability of ionizers for Class 0 and other applications will be discussed. Finally, we will look at the recent changes in ANSI/ESD S20.20 that affect the selection and use of ionizers in a static control program. This webinar will be of interest to anyone involved in protecting ESD-sensitive devices from the effects of static charge.

Time: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Arnie Steinman, Ginger Hansel, and Ted Dangelmayer, Dangelmayer Associates, LLC

Fee: Complimentary

Abstract

The worldwide industry standard for static control programs, ANSI/ESD S20.20 undergoes review every 5 years. This time, the changes were numerous and the review process took almost 7 years and the current version was released in 2014. Companies who are certified to S20.20 - 2007 have until 2016 to comply with the 2014 version. The document changes, both editorial and technical, and their implications for users, will be discussed in this webinar. The changes will expand the use of some test methods or require new test methods and possibly new test equipment. These test methods as well as S20.20 limitations will be discussed. Anyone involved with a static control program that is either compliant or certified to S20.20 will find important information in this webinar.

ESD Models and Test Methods

Time: 11 am-12:30 pm EST

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Terry Welsher, Dangelmayer Associates, LLC

Fee: Complimentary

Abstract
The familiar Human-Body Model (HBM) and Charged-Device Model (CDM) are commonly used simplifications of ESD events which have been employed in the electronics industry to characterize the vulnerability of devices to ESD events in production. Standard test methods have been adopted by the electronics industry based on these models. In many cases, HBM withstand thresholds are available on device data sheets. However, IC suppliers generally fail to put CDM withstand voltages on datasheets. These data can be used to set requirements on suppliers, classify components and manage levels of ESD control in production. However, the limits and applicability of these models are not widely understood. Some aspects of the models are arbitrary and in a given failure scenario may not be the best representation of a damaging event. Also other models (or events) are also gaining use and acceptance in the industry such as the Charged-Board Event (CBE) and Cable Discharge Event (CDE). Other models such as the so-called Machine Model (MM) are being phased out. Finally, system designers have been attempting to apply system ESD models such as IEC 61000-4-2 at the device level in ways that do not produce useful results and can be counter-productive. In this webinar, we review the basis for all these models and relationships among them. We will discuss the use of device classifications in designing production control programs and when and how to use(and not use) the various models.

ESD Class 0 – Who’s at Risk?

Time: 11 am-12:30 pm EST

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Ted Dangelmayer, Dangelmayer Associates, LLC

Fee: Complimentary

Abstract
While most companies are acutely aware of the hazards of ESD (electrostatic discharge), few know if they are at risk for Class 0 because IC suppliers generally do not include CDM ESD sensitivity data in datasheets. Others are unaware of device trends towards these ultra-sensitive components and the resulting reductions in IC device design target levels.

Join us for this interactive webinar and learn if you are at risk. You will also learn how to classify Circuit Board Assemblies that contain Class 0 components. ESD Class 0 Case Studies will be presented such as when 100% failure rates brought production to a standstill during ramp up of a one Billion dollar product line. Another Case Study documents 22% failures rates with a good S20.20 program in place.

If you are waiting for a Class 0 industry standard, it is unlikely that any standards body will be able to develop a “Class 0 Standard Process” in the foreseeable future. The variables and complexity are far too great.

S20.20 Qualification Test Methods

Time: 11 am-12:30 pm EST

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Carl Newberg, Dangelmayer Associates

Fee: Complimentary

Abstract
Did you know that ANSI/ESD S20.20 requires you to have proof that all of the products you use to control static in your process have been tested and meet the requirements of S20.20 or one of it’s sub-tier documents?

It is likely that the new version of S20.20 (planned to be released sometime in 2013) will make this requirement more stringent. Included in the new version will also be more emphasis in the ANSI/ESD STM97.2 walking voltage test for footwear/flooring qualification.

This webinar will discuss the various requirements in S20.20 and the test methods used to verify those requirements. The attendee will come away with a good understanding of the various requirements and how the tests are performed so that they can knowledgably verify that their products will perform as advertised.

Advanced ESD Scanning Techniques for Protection Circuit Analysis and Debug

Time: 11 am EST

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Jeff Dunnihoo, Pragma Design & Dangelmayer Associates

Abstract
ESD “gun” simulators were developed for system level qualification and validation. Unfortunately, these tools provide little if any help for the engineer in analyzing and debugging the root cause of hard–failure damage, and even less help for diagnosing the issues related to soft-errors and glitched system upsets.

This webinar will address new solutions that pinpoint board level vulnerabilities as well as dynamically map discharge currents throughout the system during a strike. These tools help the designer discover what individual components and nodes in the system actually “feel” during an ESD strike, where the transient pulses travel, how much, and to what effect.

Time: 11 am EST

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Terry Welsher, Dangelmayer Associates

Abstract
Advanced ESD auditing measurements for CDM & Class 0 (ultra-sensitive) devices are not well known and there are many technical and administrative pitfalls that must be avoided. You will learn how to make valid measurements, avoid common pitfalls and how to use this data to successfully handle Class 0 sensitivities. Advanced instruments such as a patent pending CDM Event Simulator will be discussed as well as when to use which ones. A compelling case study will illustrate these techniques and the success they produce.

This tutorial will be highly interactive, in-plant photographs, and compelling video clips. Students will be encouraged to ask questions and able to participate verbally in the discussions.

Surprising Sources of ESD Damage and System Upset

Time: 11 am EST

Location: Online Training – Webinar

Instructor: Ted Dangelmayer, Dangelmayer Associates

More Info: TBA

Abstract
While most companies are acutely aware of the hazards of ESD (electrostatic discharge), few are aware of just how pervasive sources of ESD damage and system upset actually are. Likewise, many ESD Program Managers have difficulty securing adequate management support. This tutorial will shed light on multiple sources of ESD damage and the circumstances where ESD failures dominate. Recent studies into the misdiagnosis of EOS failures suggest that ESD damage occurs far more often than previously realized – especially at the circuit board level. Sources of ESD damage such as CDM, HBM, MM, CDE (Cable Discharge Event), CBE (Charged Board Event), and System upsets due to RF Transients will be discussed.
