Critical Aspects in Calibration of ESD Generators

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) immunity tests are widely carried out in order to assess the immunity level of electrical and electronic equipment. ESD is a severe source of interference which can produce damage, upset or failures in any electronic system. A careful calibration procedure is required to assure that the ESD generator parameters fulfill the standard specifications. In this paper, tationhe main critical aspects involved in the calibr measurement setup are dealt with and a simple modeling support is given. On the basuis of the obtained reslts, some usefuln. conclusions and practical suggestions are finally drawn.
