This document is divided into three sections, which address ESD Reliability Window, ESD Test Methods and New ESD Requirements, as well as Technology Scaling and IC Circuit Challenges.
About the Industry Council
The Industry Council is an independent Institution focused on target levels of ESD component testing, applying the HBM, MM and CDM standards. The council accommodates both ESD design and manufacturing environment constraints. The mission of the Industry Council on ESD Target Levels is to review the ESD robustness requirements of modern IC products for allowing safe handling and mounting in an ESD protected area.
