ESD Test

Presto Engineering’s ESD Services cover all aspects of electronic device reliability qualification with fast turnaround time.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) testing is performed early in the qualification cycle, usually at first-silicon. Evolution in technology and applications (RF, analog) constantly drive new configurations, usage patterns and failure modes.

A Proven Methodology

Our standard flow includes:

  • Identification of mission profile
  • Selection of fixturing
  • Test execution
  • Reporting

We support all types of electrical stresses:

  • HBM/MM
  • CDM
  • Latch-up
  • TLP
  • Gun
  • PPW
  • OVS

Wide Range of Supported Standards

IC level: JEDEC, AEC, ESDA, ANSI
Market specific: MIL, AEC, ESCC, ISO (AUTO)

Fast Turn-around Time

Since concerns over ESD reliability usually come early in the development cycle, typically after first silicon, Presto offers very fast turn-around times, giving real-time feedback to design and product teams.

This is made possible by our very comprehensive inventory of fixtures and adapters—more that 850 of them. Most packages can be accommodated by one of our existing boards/sockets, alleviating the need for extra design time and/or NRE.

Over Voltage Stress (OVS)

Beyond peak voltage stress, industry practices are quickly evolving towards a new kind of electrical stress that verifies the robustness of devices to sustained energy dissipation, leading to absolute maximum rating (AMR) qualification.

Together, with leading automotive customers, Presto Engineering has developed a unique, fully-automated system that assesses and validates AMR.



Failure Analysis

Our hubs include failure analysis labs that constantly address issue and failures during reliability qualification, including ESD/EOS failure. Our ESD experts and capabilities in these labs ensure that reaction time to failure is extremely fast.

Consulting and Audits

Beyond stressing devices, our experts will help you understand the best stress strategies and set-up for your mission profile(s), as well as consult with you on the best design strategies for ESD protection.
