In February 2020, Panram received the SGS ANSI/ESD S20.20 certification for ESD protection.
SGS ANSI/ESD S20.20 Electrostatic Discharge Prevention Certification
ANSI/ESD S20.20/IEC61340 ANSI/ESD S20.20/IEC61340 /IEC61340-5-1 Standard and Verification ANSI/ESD S20.20/IEC61340-5-1 standard is prepared by the Electrostatic Discharge Protection Association (ESDA) of the United States for electronic, electrical, and communications static protection systems. It is a standard and guideline for the implementation of ESD systems in the electronic, electrical, and telecommunications industries. The standard is based on ISO 9001, and is a specific requirement for ESD control systems. The standard has very clear requirements on the establishment of ESD system, establishment of ESD protection area (EPA), packaging of sensitive components, handling of production processes, personnel training and assessment, establishment and inspection of internal audit system, testing methods, etc. in factories.
Electrostatic damage to electronic products has always been a problem that is not easy to solve, the normal operation of electronic products once subjected to electrostatic discharge ( Electrostatic Discharge, referred to as ESD), there will often be some instability, and sometimes the electronic components in the electronic products will be unable to withstand the electrostatic voltage or current and damage, which seriously affects the yield and reliability of electronic products.

Why is ANSI/ESD S20.20/IEC61340 ANSI/ESD S20.20/IEC61340 /IEC61340-5-1 validation required?

Internationally renowned companies such as IBM, HP, Dell, Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, etc. have all adopted or required their subcontractors to implement or obtain ESD certification. Implementing ANSI/ESD S20.20 or IEC61340-5-1 certification allows companies to meet customer requirements before their competitors do. On-site system verification by an objective and impartial ESD Association-certified third-party verifier can provide fair and objective evidence of the suitability, appropriateness, and effectiveness of the ESD protection and control system established and implemented by the company; and can appropriately reduce the cost of second-party audits.

Which industries are applicable to ANSI/ESD S20.20/IEC61340 ANSI/ESD S20.20/IEC61340 /IEC61340-5-1 validation?

Industries requiring higher standards of ESD sensitivity, such as: wafer, IC packaging, testing, electronic components, optoelectronics, electronic/communication product assembly.

ANSI/ESD S20.20 control points

ANSI/ESD S20.20 standard has very clear regulations on the establishment of ESD system in factories, the establishment of electrostatic discharge protection area (EPA), the packaging of sensitive components, the handling of each production process, personnel training and assessment, the establishment and inspection of internal audit system, inspection methods and other aspects, including.
  • Administrative requirements for ESD control programs: including ESD control program plans, training programs, certification and inspection programs
  • Technical requirements of ESD control program plan: including grounding/isotropic connection system, personnel grounding, ESD protection zone, packaging and marking
  • Calibration of measurement instruments (ESD-related measurement equipment)
  • Procurement (ESD related contracts)
  • Incoming inspection (ESD-related parts)
  • Non-conformity control and corrective preventive measures
  • Documentation and record control
