Description / Abstract:

The test methods described are intended to be used to discover subassembly failures that result from destructive ESD, as well as those failures that may result from modi├×cation of data stored in subassemblies [e.g., in nonvolatile memory elements such as electronically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) or battery supported random access memory (RAM)].

This guide does not specify ESD tests to characterize the withstand capability of subassemblies that are incomplete (e.g., in the process of being manufactured), nor the expected ESD immunity of externally powered and/or installed subassemblies. Also, this guide does not specify tests for completed equipment or systems, whether powered or not, nor does it specify ESD tests for individual electronic components, such as integrated circuits. Such ESD tests are covered in other standards (see IEC Pub 801-2 (1991), [B1], 1 [B2], and [B4]).
