Electrostatic discharge sensitivity of integrated circuits is compared with electrical failure levels in electronics assembly. Electrical components with a low electrostatic discharge withstand voltage would be expected to have more electrical failures than more robust components. However, the analysis based on 47 products, 14 facilities, and 6 billion integrated circuits show no correlation between electrical failures and electrostatic discharge sensitivity of components. This was found when the withstand voltage of the components is equal or higher than 100 V human body model and 200 V charged device model. (c) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
