Electrostatic Discharge Control Program

Electronics industry professionals understand the critical importance of proper component handling and procedures to prevent Electrical Overstress (EOS) and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) component and assembly damage.

QMS understands that EOS results in diminished operation or latent defects causing catastrophic functional loss. Even if not immediately apparent, the smallest electrical charges may cause undetectable gate breakdown damage, diminish wire bond integrity, or affect other electromechanical reliability compromises manifesting after multiple power exposures.

Proper training and a thorough understanding of ESD prevention ensures the highest possible delivered product reliability. QMS has developed an ESD control program in accordance with JESD625-B “Requirements for Handling Electrostatic-Discharge Sensitive (ESDS) Devices” and the ANSI20.20 “Protection of Electrical and Electronic Parts, Assemblies and Equipment (Excluding Electrically Initiated Explosive Devices)”. Both standards benchmark industry expectations, providing our customers complete reliability confidence and brand integrity.

Every Quality Manufacturing Services associate understands, promotes, and remains committed to ensure the application of a comprehensive, effective ESD control program. At all times, associates follow the proper movement and storage of ESD sensitive material, wrist, heel strap, and/or appropriate static dissipative footwear timely verifications, proper ESD smock attire in ESD sensitive locations, and adherence to internal QMS ESD procedures.

A clear understanding of correct EOS prevention and ESD program measures eliminates any electrical performance uncertainty and fulfills Quality Manufacturing Services’ obligation to meet and exceed customer expectations.
