The Invisible Foe – Understanding and Controlling ESD Damage

May 9, 2014
Sponsored by VersaLogic

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is indeed the "invisible foe" of electronic product quality and reliability. ESD includes spectacular electric sparks, but also less dramatic forms which may be neither seen nor heard, yet still are large enough to cause damage to sensitive electronic devices. These unseen events can be extremely costly. ESD damage lowers production yields, increases warranty rework, causes higher inventory requirements, and lowers customer satisfaction. According to industry experts, high tech OEMs lose at least 4% to 6% of annual gross sales due to ESD every year. Read this white paper and learn how you can help your organization identify potential sources of ESD loss, establish effective ESD controls, and improve product reliability.
