—This paper describes a constant impedance transmission line pulse system with new measurement capabilities and improved accuracy. The paper enforces a broader look at transmission line pulse (TLP) data, beyond the – curves. Accurate TLP measurements and actual TLP/HBM device data are used to demonstrate effects and HBM/TLP correlation and miscorrelation.… (More)
– Parameters associated with an observed variation in CDM ESD waveforms are shown to be pogo pin diameter, pogo pin length, ground plane size, and distance between ground plane and charge plate. The effects on resulting discharge waveforms and solutions for improvement of existing CDM standards will be discussed.
