Title

Metrology & Methodology of System Level ESD Testing

Abstract

Parameters which cause the poor reproducibility of system level ESD tests have been identified: simulator calibration methodology and insufficient simulator specifications. Results of round robin tests we performed at three laboratories are reported. A better calibration methodology for ESD current measurement and additional simulator specifications for output current and radiated fields are proposed.
