ESD Control for Electronics Assembly

DVD: ESD Control for Electronics Assembly -- Control de ESD Ensambles Electrónicos, SPANISH / ENGLISH

Date of Publication: Jul 11, 2016

Sample Video

As new generations of integrated circuits (ICs) become more sensitive to electrostatic discharge, ESD continues to be one of the most pernicious problems facing the electronics industry. Education is essential to prevent costly failures and expensive rework.

A joint collaboration between IPC -- Association Connecting Electronics Industries, and ESDA -- the Electrostatic Discharge Association -- has produced the most up-to-date, technically accurate ESD Control video training currently available to deal with the effects of shrinking geometries, increased performance requirements and lower operating voltages.

Developed by top industry experts, this educational video covers static electricity generation, triboelectric charging, ESD failure models and techniques to control ESD, including personal grounding for seated and standing operations, wrist straps, controlling static charges in the work area, and proper handling, packaging and transporting of ESD sensitive devices to the S20.20 ESDA Specification.

DVD menu allows you to skip over technical content that may not be applicable to your company. Telly Award winner. Time: 30 minutes.

Como las nuevas generaciones de los circuitos integrados (ICs) llegan a ser más sensibles a descargas electrostáticas, ESD continúa siendo uno de los más problemas perniciosos que enfrenta la industria electrónica. La educación es esencial para evitar errores costosos y re-trabajo costoso.

Una colaboración conjunta entre IPC--Asociación Conecta Industrias Electrónicas y ESDA--la Asociación de Descarga Electrostática - han producido el más actualizado, técnicamente exacto ESD.

El video de capacitación de control disponible actualmente para lidiar con los efectos de reducción en la geometría de componentes, requisitos de mayor rendimiento y voltajes de operación más bajos.

Notes on DVD / OVT Product Descriptions:

Items preceded by an order number beginning with DVD, are digital video products. These DVDs are designed to play on DVD movie players. They can also be played on computers using DVD playback software.

Items preceded by OVT are Online Video Training products. These digital movies are designed for playback on computers / networks – depending on the license type you purchase. OVT-(S) is Site License (single facility). OVT-(G) is a Global License (multi-site).


Training Certification is an ideal way to train and verify competency in key subject areas, like ESD Control, Lead Free Soldering, Component ID, Safety, and Acceptance Standards. These multi-media based resources include everything a trainer needs to instruct, test and certify that their operators have completed a course successfully. All students with a grade of 70% or better on the final examinations qualify for IPC Training Certification. Please see the sample certificate (.pdf) which allows for user-customization of student name, instructor, and date of completion. There is no expiration / renewal date for any Training Certification program, and they may be administered by anyone in your company.

As an operator-level credential, Training Certification demonstrates mastery of the specific theory and knowledge contained in the course, as evidence of competency for ISO training requirements through an industry-developed training program. Training Certification does not qualify instructors or students to teach or interpret IPC specifications, or assure proficiency in the physical skills required to create products to the requirements of IPC specifications.

Like all IPC Video / DVD, OVT and Computer-Based (CD) training programs, Training Certification is available for unlimited students per the particular licensing structure chosen. These media-based training solutions are created in cooperation with volunteer industry experts – to ensure technical accuracy – and are free from commercial bias.
