ESD Guidelines
What does ESD mean?
All electronic modules are equipped with highly integrated modules or components. Based
on their design, these electronic components are highly sensitive to overvoltage and thus to
discharge of static electricity.
The electrostatic sensitive components/modules are commonly referred to as ESD devices.
You can also find the commonly used international designation ESD for electrostatic
sensitive device.
Electrostatic sensitive modules are identified by the following symbol:
Caution
Electrostatic sensitive devices may be destroyed by voltages and energies that are
undetectable to a human. Voltages of this kind occur as soon as a component or an
assembly is touched by a person who is not grounded against static electricity. The damage
to a module as a result of overvoltage cannot usually be detected immediately. It may only
become apparent after a long period of operation.

B.1 ESD Guidelines
Electrical charge
Anyone who is not connected to the electrical potential of their surroundings can be
electrostatically charged.
The figure below shows the maximum electrostatic voltages that can accumulate in a person
who is operating equipment when he/she comes into contact with the materials indicated.
These values correspond with specifications to IEC 801-2.
Figure B-1
Electrostatic voltages on an operator
Basic protective measures against discharge of static electricity
• Ensure good equipotential bonding:
When handling electrostatic sensitive devices, ensure that your body, the workplace and
packaging are grounded. This helps you avoid static charge.
• Avoid Direct Contact
As a general rule, only touch electrostatic sensitive devices when this is unavoidable (e.g.
during maintenance work). When you touch modules, make sure that you do not touch
either the pins on the modules or the printed conductors. This prevents any discharge of
static electricity to sensitive component and thus avoids damage.
Discharge electrostatic energy from your body before you perform measurements on a
module. To do so, touch a grounded metallic object. Always use grounded measuring
instruments.
