Global Standards for the Microelectronics Industry
ESD: Electrostatic Discharge
JEDEC has taken a leadership role in developing standards for ESD since the early 1980s, including standards for device handling and test methods related to ESD. Below is a summary of useful standards and documents related to ESD.
- Published JEDEC standards include Joint JEDEC/ESDA Human Body Model (JS-001-2017) and Joint JEDEC/ESDA Charged Device Model (JS-002-2022).
- JEDEC publications related to ESD include JEP193: Survey On Latch-Up Testing Practices and Recommendations for Improvements; JEP164: System Level ESD Part III: Review of ESD Testing and Impact on System-Efficient ESD Design (SEED); JEP178: ESD Sensitivity Testing – Reporting ESD Withstand Levels on Datasheets; JEP174: Understanding Electrical Overstress; JEP172A: Discontinuing Use of the Machine Model for Device ESD Qualification; JEP155: HBM Target Levels; JEP157: CDM Target Levels; JEP161: System Level Part 1 Overview; and JEP162: System Level Part 2 Design Methods
