Title

System level ESD failure mechanisms, analysis and test method

Abstract

"This dissertation, composed of four papers, discusses three topics related to system level electrostatic discharge. In the first paper, the discharge current and the transient fields of an ESD generator in the contact mode are numerically simulated using the FDTD method...The second and the third papers derived a reference ESD event for human-metal ESD from measured discharges...In the fourth paper, a three dimensional ESD scanning system which has been developed to record the ESD susceptibility map for printed circuit board is presented and the mechanisms that the ESD event couples into the digital devices is studied"--Abstract, leaf iv.
