Global Standards for the Microelectronics Industry
REQUIREMENTS FOR HANDLING ELECTROSTATIC-DISCHARGE-SENSITIVE (ESDS) DEVICES
This standard establishes the minimum requirements for Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) control methods and materials used to protect electronic devices that are susceptible to damage or degradation from electrostatic discharge (ESD). The passage of a static charge through an electrostatic-discharge-sensitive (ESDS) device can result in catastrophic failure or performance degradation of the part.
