Global Standards for the Microelectronics Industry
SYMBOL AND LABEL FOR ELECTROSTATIC SENSITIVE DEVICES
Status: Reaffirmed> October 1988, September 1996, November 1996, September 2009
This standard will be useful to anyone engaged in handling semiconductor devices and integrated circuits that are subject to permanent damage due to electrostatic potentials. The standard establishes a symbol and label that will gain the attention of those persons who might inflict electrostatic damage to the device. The label which is placed on the lowest practical level of packaging contains the words 'ATTENTION - OBSERVE PRECAUTIONS FOR HANDLING ELECTROSTATIC SENSITIVE DEVICES'. The symbol contained in this label, which may be used on the device itself, shows a hand in a triangle with a bar through it. Formerly known as EIA-471.
