Electrostatic Discharge Sensitivity Testing Transmission Line Pulse (TLP) – User and Application Guide
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
The document is divided into two main sections: the user guide which focuses on setting up and calibrating the TLP system; and the application guide which focuses on possible methods of using TLP.
It is expected that subsequent versions of this document will be released that expand the coverage of the user and application guides. Since this document is a companion to ANSI/ESD STM5.5.1, it is limited to the quasi-static application of TLP. Other applications of TLP will be described in separate documents.
The information and procedures explained in this technical report are intended to help those performing transmission line pulse (TLP) testing as described in ANSI/ESD STM5.5.1 - ESD Association Standard Test Method for Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Sensitivity Testing - Transmission Line Pulse (TLP) - Device Level1.
