ESD Materials, Packaging & Product Testing
ESD Testing for "hot spots" on ESD materials
Qualification Testing before deployment resulted in a Successful Launch!
Ionization Qualification Testing is a critical component of SEMI E-78 Validation
Troubleshooting in Low RH
Protective Packaging for Smart Batteries is long ignored for Safety and Reliability.
Misuse of "pink poly" for shielding is common for Space & Defense and should always be verified for Compliance before usage.
Advanced Polymers must be tested at +/- 12% for harsh environments
Learning how to detect Non-Compliant and Suspect Counterfeit ESD materials is critical for the Supply Chain
Wearables Verification and Qualification is critical for use on, in or near the Human Body for long term reliability and safety.
SME Troubleshooting for Aircraft, Terrestrial & Maritime may include
Advanced Manufacturing without up-to-date Quality Best Practices
Long Term Storage and Handling Issues
Lack of Traceability for Material Integrity
Offshore substitution of OEM Materials without Qualification
Obsolete Industry Practices not keeping pace with Innovation
Class Zero Devices generating issues not experienced in the past
Suspect Counterfeiting or Non-Compliance not identifiable by Incoming Inspection
Web Format training vs. Onsite Hands On and Virtual Hands On Training
Continued use of shelf-life materials in Manufacturing/Assembly
Automatic/Storage Retrieval in Harsh Environments
Contract Assembly Areas without protocols ("Kitting")
"Grey" Market Materials and Lower Prices
Data Center Flooring not "Certified" before purchase
Incoming raw materials for R&D Centers and Internet purchasing
Ionization "oversold" for Controlled/Sterile Environments
Long Term Storage and Austere Environments
Robotics Equipment and RH
Incorrect usage of ESD Test Instrumentation
Workstations, Benches, Handtools and Accessories
