FC220: Device Technology & Failure for the Program Manager
Terry Welsher, Dangelmayer Associates, LLC
Certification: PrM
This tutorial provides an overview of the device technology used to provide ESD protection, ESD protection techniques, and Failure Analysis (FA) techniques to debug non-working ESD protection. This class does not go into the depth necessary to equip the student to be an ESD Protection Designer or an ESD Failure Analysis Engineer. It does familiarize the student with the terms and concepts of ESD protection and FA to allow the student to interact and understand the work being done by the Designer or Failure Analyst. After completing this tutorial the student should be able to understand the basics of device ESD protection design and some of the trade-offs inherent in that process. The student should also be familiar with the most commonly used failure analysis techniques and tools used to identify the root cause of an ESD failure. The topics covered include: the three most common ESD Models: HBM, CDM and System Level (IEC); characteristics of ideal ESD protection; ESD failure analysis schemes; key characteristics of real ESD protection; failure analysis flow; failure analysis tools and how they are applied to ESD failures.

FC380: Electrostatic Calculations for the Program Manager
Terry Welsher, Dangelmayer Associates, LLC
Certification: PrM
This tutorial is a four part series on Electrostatic Calculations. The material included is the same as is included in the full tutorial usually presented at the EOS/ESD Symposium or ESDA Regional Tutorials. The four parts focus on the basic calculations and techniques of use to the Program Manager and the ESD engineer. The content is at the introductory high school or college pre-calculus and introductory college physics level set in the context of electrostatic discharge and its effects. Each part also includes an additional review of the mathematics used in the practical calculations.

FC340: ESD Program Development and Assessment (ANSI/ESD S20.20)
Ron Gibson, Advanced Static Control Consulting; John T. Kinnear, IBM Corporation
Certification: PrM

This seminar provides instruction on designing and implementing an ESD control program based on ANSI/ESD S20.20. The course provides participants with the tools and techniques to prepare for an ESD facility audit. This two-day course is an ESDA certification requirement for in-plant auditors and program managers who are working toward professional ESD certification.
The following topics are covered in this course:
Overview of ANSI/ESD S20.20
How to approach an assessment
Administrative elements
ESD program assessment
ESD program techniques for different applications
Technical elements
Overview of the assessment process
The audit checklist and follow-up questions

It is recommended that the ESD Program Development and Assessment (ANSI S20.20) be taken after the certification candidate has taken most of the other program manager related tutorials.
