Description / Abstract:

This standard establishes the procedure for testing, evaluating, and classifying components and microcircuits according to their susceptibility (sensitivity) to damage or degradation by exposure to a defined human body model (HBM) electrostatic discharge (ESD).


The purpose (objective) of this standard is to establish a test method that will replicate HBM failures and provide reliable, repeatable HBM ESD test results from tester to tester, regardless of component type. Repeatable data will allow accurate classifications and comparisons of HBM ESD sensitivity levels.

Existing Data

Data previously generated with testers meeting all waveform criteria of ANSI/ESDA/JEDEC JS-001-2010 and subsequent versions, ANSI/ESD STM5.1-2007, or JESD22-A114F shall be considered valid test data.
