  • Problem Plungers in Handlers Create Static Charge, Cause Failure (.pdf)
    Among the more common handlers used in the electronics industry are ones manufactured by Delta Design. However, these handlers feature a type of plunger that creates a static charge. As a result, an integrated circuit can be "zapped," causing it to fail. The problem is especially insidious because
  • Static Electricity
    susceptible to the effects of ESD and EOS. When static charge of less than 10 volts will destroy a class 1 ESD sensitive device and it is possible to create a static charge of over 35000 volts walking across a carpet on a dry day, the problem is immediate and severe.
  • Tech Tips - Controlling Static on a Moving Web
    In moving web applications, static charges are frequently generated from the continuous contact-and-separation action of the material in process as it passes over the rollers. Slowing your process speed may reduce the level of the static charge, but it will also reduce your overall productivity
  • Getting Rid of Charges Part 3: Workstation Grounding
    Any ESD-sensitive device can also be damaged from charges built up while moving it across a work area or from other charged items in the area. To reduce and counteract the build-up of static charges, ESD-safe matting and ionizers are used in areas where electro-static discharge is a concern.
  • Developing an exit charge specification for semiconductor production equipment
    and Julian A. Montoya, Static charge can cause several kinds of problems in semiconductor manufacturing, including process equipment malfunctions, damaged products, and contamination attraction to product surfaces. Simple calculations indicate that the costs of these problems run in the hundreds
  • No-static plastics
    steel or carbon. The efficiency with which these plastics dissipate static is significantly higher than that of insulators, but less than conductors. Static-control plastics are designed such that they have specific properties that manage the process of charge leaking off. These
  • ESD Control / Static Dissipative Mats
    ESD control or static dissipative mats remove the charge generated by triboelectric activities (movement of people, chairs, etc.). Static dissipative mats eliminate charges when the mat contacts the charged person or equipment. The mats should be grounded to provide a path for the charge
  • Controlling Static: Alternatives to Tinsel (.pdf)
    Converters of non-conductive web surfaces, such as pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) tapes, need to be constantly vigilant in controlling static electricity. High levels of electrostatic charges can be dangerous, and moderate levels can permanently destroy an adhesive system, cause fouling
