  • Protect Your Products

    When it comes to protecting electronic parts from electrostatic discharge(ESD) during the manufacturing process, you can never be too careful. The testing of these parts is crucial as ESD damage is not visible, but certain kinds of damage can be missed even during testing. There are three kinds of damage that can occur from ESD. Catastrophic failure is almost always discovered during testing as there is usually immediate, permanent damage such as a metal melt or an oxide failure. Luckily, these are caught and can be reworked or scrapped before...

  • Coronas and the Corona Treater

    I still cannot read the words corona treater' without picturing myself sitting in a beach chair, looking out at the ocean, drinking a chilled bottle of Corona with lime. And once my mind is here, it takes a good fifteen minutes for me to pull myself away from my sun-filled day dream and back to the real world of static eliminators. Corona treaters are not a portable chilling device for beer (however that would be amazing), they are actually a preventative measure against EDM. These products are applied to various...

  • Electrostatic Discharge Free Materials

    In a world where friction quickly causes electrostatic discharge to build up and flare out, it is nice to know that there are materials that neutralize the effects of it, and sometimes eliminate it completely. More than simply being a way to avoid getting frizzy hair and shocking your friends when giving high fives, anti static materials are vital for a number of static sensitive environments that could sustain extremely expensive damage. For example, any environment that involves sensitive electronics such as computers, medical machinery or semiconductors is going to...

  • ESD Protection and Nano Technology

    The overall performance of integrated circuits tends to greatly improve as individual transistors continue to be downsized. One downside of this downsizing is that the smaller the transistors become, the more vulnerable to high current and high voltage Electrostatic Discharge damage they become. High-k gate dielectrics and other materials are introduced to modern chip fabrication technologies and Silicon-on-Insulator technology is becoming more prevalent because of this decreasing scale. Because of these advances, ESD protection of silicon chips is more necessary as well as more challenging. There are a few specific...

  • ESD Protection: Custom Applications

    The static I deal with on a daily basis is nothing compared to the types of static that can affect some individuals and certain sensitive pieces of equipment. Although there are general products that an everyday individual like me can utilize to decrease the electrostatic discharge around me, such as anti static spray, the precautions used for certain electronic and mechanical devices are much more extreme. ESD protection is more then just stopping a small shock to the hand. Some equipment can be so adverse to static that there operation...

ESD Protection

ESD, or electrostatic discharge prevention are measures taken to help eliminate the release of electrical energy that is usually caused by the shift of electrons from one object to another as they come in contact with and separate from one another. ESD protection comes in many different forms, all of which are preventative measures since the damage done by static cannot be undone.

The ESD transfer that requires ESD protection often occurs between human hands and electronics, which can result in harmful electric shocks that can result in the injure of an individual, interference, permanent damage or catastrophic failure of many different sensitive electronic devices, equipment and machinery. While the electronic device may not undergo complete failure when subjected to ESD, degradation can happen, which causes product damage that results in a lower level of efficiency and reliability. However, there are several simple and effective products designed to guard against ESD, most of which are inexpensive and regularly used by computer repair technicians, clean room workers, lab technicians and workers assembling and manufacturing electronics, computers and cell phones. The products include anti static mats and gloves, ground straps, spray, bags and brushes. These preventative products ground, dissipate, conduct or balance any charge carried on an individual about to handle electronic hardware of any kind.

Before anyone touches the internal components of any electronic device or equipment, it must be unplugged and the person must be grounded, which is the process of connecting with a conductor to transfer any ESD to another object, making sure there is no chance to transfer any to the hardware. The most popular, effective and inexpensive method of ESD protection is a grounding strap, often called a wrist strap. These are Velcro cuffs made of a conductive fiber material with a small piece of metal attached to a wire in the form of a braid, strip, mesh or wire. That wire is connected to a grounding device like an anti static mat made of rubber and a grounding outlet. Anti static gloves are mostly used in electronics and computer manufacturing and assembly environments, where workers are continually handling sensitive, internal hardware. They prevent the static charge from transferring from a hand to the device by blocking the static. Static brushes are used when cleaning equipment and anti-static spray prevents the occurrence of ESD by coating hard-to-reach places. Other less common options include ionizers, which neutralize static charges sitting on object surfaces, and corona treaters, which expose the object to electrical discharge as another preventative measure against ESD.
