Abstract: Three different roadmaps exist today. All of them have various approaches to describe the electrostatic sensibility of electronic devices. Thus, a roadmap of the Semiconductor Industries (ITRS), a roadmap of the ESD Association of America (ESDA) and a roadmap of a council, which basically represents OEMs (semiconductor and big EMS companies), exist. This presentation compares the different roadmaps and suggests future requirements for equipment of SMT production lines, avoiding electrostatic breakdowns at electronic devices and assemblies.
