– In this work, we demonstrate that both capacitance and inductance must be the central parameters associated with the Charged Device Model (CDM) waveform verification modules. We also propose a change from the previously used FR-4 dielectric material substrate to a more stable Alumina. This improves waveform repeatability and will lead to better… (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.
