HMM
(Human Metal Model)

HMM, performed according to ESD SP5.6-2019 published by the Electrostatic Discharge Association (ESDA), delivers IEC-61000-4-2 compliant current pulses for testing boards, wafers , packages, or sub assemblies. Our GTS Tarvos HMM pulser delivers waveforms through a 50Ω line directly to the DUT. The controlled impedance path removes the uncertainties of gun based testing. Each pulse is monitored and measured.

We may also check leakage between pulses and compare for damage assessment. DUT impedance is measured to track heating effects. Waveforms up to 8kV are available.
