What is Electrostatic Discharge – ESD Testing?
ESD Testing is a means to understand how, should a product cause electrostatic to build and then discharges when someone picks it up, the discharge will disrupt the electric circuitry of a device. Not only can it be harmful to the electronic product, the person that picked up the device could get hurt. ESD testing can be used to find a more reliable and less volatile components of static electricity that can be used in the design of an electronics device.
Percept offers a suite of engineering tests used to assess a product’s readiness for the market which include:
These suite of tests are designed to uncover weaknesses in the electronics device that can usually be attributed to design mistakes. The key is to find these mistakes early enough in the development process without major impact to production scheduling and budget. In most cases, products will fail the first time before a product is altered because a test has revealed something that was inadequate Call today for your FREE Consultation! 303.444.7480 Back to EMC Diagnosis & Mitigation
Electronics products must be tested for electrostatic discharge prior to being sold and cannot legally be sold without an ESD certification, among other EMC tests. ESD testing can be used for reliability purposes as well as for compliance requirements. Company management and government agencies will require a product passes a suite of tests – whether it is reliability or compliance tests.
