ESD awareness

Join us (Booth 506) at the 43rd Annual EOS/ESD Symposium and Exhibits. The event will be held September 26th – 30th, 2021 at the Westin La Paloma in Tucson, AZ. From an initial emphasis of ESD on electronic components, the EOS/ESD Association has broadened its horizons to include areas such as textiles, plastics, web processing,…

This video covers the fundamental principles for protecting ESD sensitive components in a electronics production environment. The presentation includes an explanation and demonstrations of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), the different models for ESD events, and material types used in an ESD Protected Area (EPA). To learn how to build an effective ESD control program that is…

Desco made our first crude version of a wrist strap for an aerospace customer in Southern California. The wrist strap was basically a metal watchband connected to a wire with a ring terminal on it. There were no industry accepted standards, qualification procedures, or certification processes at that time. ESD susceptible components used in electronics…

SMTA is offering a webinar on the elementary principles of ESD Control. The webinar will be November 26 @ 2:30pm – 4:00pm GMT (9:30am – 11:00am US Eastern Time). Click HERE for registration and more information.

Stop by the Desco Industries Inc booth to see a demo of the SmartLog Pro®. The SmartLog Pro® verifies the functionality of an operator’s wrist strap and footwear, logs the test results, and controls access to an ESD Protected Area. All operator test activity is logged into a database to meet the ANSI/ESD S20.20 requirement for “Compliance…

Think Of Static Electricity as Germs and Contamination! Daily life has other examples of hidden enemies where careful procedures must be followed to regularly obtain positive results. One example is sterilization, which combats germs and contamination in hospitals. Damage caused by invisible and undetectable events can be understood by comparing ESD damage to medical contamination of the human…

At this point in our blog series concerning ESD Awareness, we should  consider some basic physics: Ohm’s law is an extremely useful equation in the field of electrical/electronic engineering because it describes how voltage, current, and resistance are interrelated. Ohm’s law states that, in an electrical circuit, the current passing through a conductor between two…
