Machine Model (MM) – Don’t Do It

1 – Introduction Traditionally there have been three test methods for evaluating the robustness of integrated circuits to electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage during manufacturing, Human Body Model (HBM), Machine Model (MM) and Charged Device Model (MM). Recently MM has fallen … Read More

HBM: 10kOhm Option

In an earlier blog the basic HBM waveform was discussed and Figure 1 was used to introduce how the waveform was formed. The JS-001 HBM standard shows a somewhat more detailed figure, which is reproduced in Figure 2. The two … Read More
