Systematic handling of a company's technical expertise

Beschreibung Standard/Regelwerk


As microcircuit architectures become smaller and more complex, ESD-sensitive devices become more susceptible to damage caused by electrostatic events. For electronics manufacturers, ESD events can damage products, rendering them unusable or significantly shortening their service life.

Electronic component processors, manufacturers and distributors need to understand and apply effective ESD controls when handling, manufacturing, packaging and labeling these sensitive devices. Product manufacturing processes must be robust if electrostatic events and product damage are to be prevented throughout the product manufacturing chain.

ANSI/ESD S20.20 Description.

The first step is the external control of the supplier's incoming product. Organizations need to be vigilant in determining their suppliers' ESD programs. Evidence of program reliability should be readily available.

The next step is to assess all areas of the product production chain within the organization where products are susceptible or potentially susceptible to ESD events. These must be clearly identified and properly controlled.

It should be noted that a single complaint from a field failure can have a devastating impact on a company's ability to maintain operations, thereby jeopardizing future success.

What is the cost of ANSI/ESD S20.20 verification?

The cost of ANSI/ESD S20.20 validation depends on many factors. For example, whether there is a validated management system. In addition, the size of your company and the complexity of your product have an impact on the number of man-days and price of the audit. Due to these factors, there is no fixed total cost for ANSI/ESD S20.20 validation. We are happy to provide individual quotes for your company, organization or institution.


Why choose DQS?

Choosing DQS as an independent third-party audit assessment not only helps organizations identify weaknesses, but also helps prevent ESD occurrences. There are many benefits to implementing ESD audit verification, one of the key benefits is to reduce the risk of damage to ESD sensitive equipment. ESD verification will help reduce product failures and increase product reliability.
