Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Control for Electronics Assembly

Course Description

As new generations of integrated circuits (ICs) become more sensitive to electrostatic discharge, ESD continues to be one of the most pernicious problems facing the electronics industry. Education is essential to prevent costly failures and expensive rework.


The purpose of this course is to define Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), explain the effects on electronic devices, and explain the employees responsibilities for controlling ESD in the workplace including personal grounding for seated and standing operations, wrist straps, controlling static charges in the work area, and proper handling, packaging and transporting of ESD sensitive devices to the S20.20 ESDA Specification.


This course is designed for the new employee exposed for the first time to the electronics industry, as well as the veteran worker. Educating employees is the key to providing quality products and services.


This course will educate your operators on critical information need to control static charge build-ups and prevent costly damage to electronic components and assemblies.


The course can easily be customized to address your specific requirements. Certifications are valid for 2 years. Employees would be retested or required to attend a refresher course. Training is supported by video, lecture and group interaction. An optional written exam is also available.


Topics 

  • Introduction: Physics of Static Electricity
  • How Static Charges Damage Components
  • Grounding (Seated and Standing) 
  • Wrist Straps / Shoe Grounding / Testing 
  • Safe Clothing
  • Static Control Smocks
  • ESD-Safe Work Areas
  • Elimination of Static Generating Materials
  • Controlling Charge Build-Ups
  • Activities That Create Static Electricity
  • Proper Handling / Storage / Transportation of ESD Sensitive Devices.

High Melting Point (HMP) Solder Training

 

Course Description

This hands-on course requires an in-depth review of HMP soldering fundamentals, proper soldering methods, equipment care, ESD, safety and general requirement for soldering electronic assemblies.

There are many situations in electronics manufacturing where it is necessary to use high melting point solder.

HMP soldering requires soldering temperatures to be higher than normal Sn/Pb or even standard lead-free temperatures. This requires a much greater need for precise work by the operators. This course covers the need for greater attention to soldering times, temperature and equipment care, required to ensure acceptable solder connections.

Customize this course by selecting only the modules that meet your training requirements. Students will learn the differences from standard soldering and why they are critical to the soldering process. During the hands-on portion the students will learn to put into practice what they learned in the classroom. Each student will gain the knowledge necessary to ensure quality skills and the latest acceptable workmanship requirements for all classes of products for soldering and reworking connections using HMP solders.

   

Course Topics:

Module 1: HMP Basic Soldering Principles (required)

Module 2: HMP Plated Through Hole (PTH) Soldering

Module 3: HMP Surface Mount Technology (SMT) Soldering

Module 4: HMP Terminal and Wire Soldering

Module 5: HMP Rework and Touch-up of Plated Through Hole (PTH)

Module 6: HMP Rework and Touch-up of Surface Mount Technology (SMT)

Module 7: HMP Solder Inspection Skills
