EOS/ESD Association, Inc. began with fewer than 100 members, and has now grown to over 15,869 members and volunteers throughout the world. Initially focusing on ESD on electronic components, the Association has broadened its horizons to include areas such as textiles, plastics, web processing, cleanrooms, and graphic arts.
To meet the needs of a continually changing environment, EOS/ESD Association, Inc. is chartered to expand ESD awareness through standards, development, education programs, local chapters, publications, tutorials, certification, and symposia. It is the only organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to write and produce standards on electrostatics.
INTRODUCTION TO STATIC ELECTRICITY
In ordinary circumstances, static electricity and ESD are little more than an annoyance. However, in an increasingly technological age, the familiar static shock we receive when walking across a carpet can be costly or dangerous.
This same static discharge can ignite flammable mixtures and damage electronic components. Static electricity can attract contaminants in clean environments or cause products to stick together.
The cost of ESD-damaged electronic devices alone ranges from only a few cents for a simple diode to several hundred dollars for complex hybrids. Loss of production time in web processing industries due to static attraction is significant. When associated costs of repair and rework, shipping, labor, and overhead are included, opportunities must be considered for significant improvements in reducing losses to ESD and static electricity.
