Electrostatics - Part 5-1: Protection of electronic devices from electrostatic phenomena - General requirements

Executive summary

General requirements for the protection of electrostatic discharge sensitive devices (ESDS) from electrostatic discharge and fields.


This European Standard specifies the general requirements for the protection of electrostatic discharge sensitive devices (ESDS) from electrostatic discharges and fields. It applies only to the manufacture and use of electronic devices.

This standard specifies how to design, use and control a protected area to ensure that electrostatic sensitive devices, having a withstand threshold voltage of 100 V (human body model) or higher, can be handled with a minimum risk of damage resulting from electrostatic phenomena.

Normal precautions given in this standard are applicable for areas with clean room types in excess of ISO 14644-1 class 5. Alternative precautions may be required in clean rooms of ISO 14644-1 class 5 or less if contamination is formed as a result of using the procedures specified in this standard.

Although this standard does not include requirements for personnel safety, attention is drawn to the need for all concerned to comply with relevant local statutory requirements regarding the health and safety of all persons in all places of work, including those covered by this standard. Generally, there is no minimum value of resistance for the protection of ESDS. However, a minimum resistance value may be required for the safety of personnel.
