Forming ESD Standards

Rome, NY | The ESD Assn. and the JEDEC Solid State Technology Assn., Arlington, VA, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding agreement for the development of joint standards and publications in the field of device electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitivity testing.

Under the agreement, volunteers from the ESD Assn. and JEDEC member companies will participate in a Joint Task Force for standardization work.

David E. Swenson, president of ESD Assn., says, “This historic collaboration between the ESDA and JEDEC paves the way for the development of harmonized test methods for ESD, which will ultimately reduce uncertainty about test standards among manufacturers and suppliers in the solid state industry.”
