January 29, 2013 Tues 3-5pm - "Advanced ESD Susceptibility Scanning & Current Reconstru-ction Techniques", Jeffrey Dunnihoo - A new solution to this problem was discussed that has adapted EMI/EMC 3D scanning systems in conjunction with injected pulse generator simulators in both “current reconstruction” and transient susceptibility scanning modes. These systems attempt to identify which individual components and nodes actually “feel” the residual and induced transient pulses, how much, and to what effect. We also presented some reconstructed animations of measured ESD charge distribution during a strike on an actual system board, along with some case studies and take a look toward the future of ESD scanning/reconstruction technology.
