Question You have referenced standard EIA-625 on a couple of occasions. If my understanding is correct, this standard is for the minimum allowable voltage level in an ESD safe area. What exactly does this standard say and where could I get a copy of this standard. Thanks. - Anonymous, Nampa, ID
Answer The ANSI/EIA-625-1994 standard is labeled, “Requirements for Handling Electrostatic-Discharge-Sensitive (ESDS) Devices. SCOPE: The Scope of 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. ESD-sensitive devices are defined by appropriate documents (e.g., MIL-STD-883, Test Method 3015, MIL-HDBK-263). ESDS devices with human body model sensitivities of less than +/- 200 volts may need additional protective measures beyond those specified in this standard. OBTAIN A COPY: As a service to our customers, we make this document available. You can also obtain a copy directly from Global Engineering Documents.
