Electrostatic Calculations for the PrM and ESD Engineer

Part 1-On Demand

Part 2-On Demand

Part 3-August 23, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Part 4-Sept 26, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Course Description

This online 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.
Taking all four parts of this online calculations class will fill the requirement for the full length calculations tutorial that is part of the ESDA Program Manager Certification curriculum. Details on the Professional Certification Programs offered by ESDA are on our website at www.esda.org/certification.html. The Calculations class is recommended to help prepare for the iNARTE ESD Engineer exam. For details visit www.esda.org/nartecert.html: Terry Welsher, Dangelmayer Associates, L.L.C. Leo G. Henry, ESD TLP Consultants, LLC

AIR IONIZATION: ISSUES AND ANSWERS FOR THE PROGRAM MANAGER

Part 1-Oct 4, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Part 2-Oct 16, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Part 3-Oct 25, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Instructor: ARNOLD STEINMAN, Electrostatics Consultant Electronics Workshop

Course Description

The primary method of static charge control is direct connection to ground for conductors, static dissipative materials, and personnel. But a complete static control program must also deal with isolated conductors, insulating materials, and moving personnel that cannot be grounded. Air ionization can neutralize the charge on insulated and isolated objects. It does this by charging the molecules of the gases in the surrounding air. Whatever charge is present on objects in the work area, it will be neutralized by attracting opposite polarity charges from the air. This webinar will present the information needed to use ionizers to solve problems caused by static charge. It is a basic course on ionizers, providing an introduction to their use, as well as advanced application information.
Taking all three parts of this online Ionization class will fill the requirement for the full length tutorial that is part of the ESDA Program Manager Certification curriculum. Details on the Professional Certification Programs offered by ESDA are on our website at www.esda.org/certification.html.

Cleanroom Considerations for the Program Manager

Part 1-Oct 11, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Part 2-Oct 23, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Part 3-Nov 1, 2012, 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time

Instructor: Christopher Long, IBM

Course Description

Many industries require "Clean Manufacturing", however with clean manufacturing also come requirements for lowered humidity levels, process-required insulators, ultra-clean surfaces, processes which involve product movement, and a lack of naturally occurring ions. All of these can pose challenges from an electrostatic generation and discharge perspective. It is critical for those who work in industries that require clean manufacturing to know how to control static charge generation in and around contamination and ESD sensitive products. The purpose of this class is to provide background on cleanroom/clean environment fundamentals, means of control and measurement of such environments, and methods for controlling/eliminating electrostatic discharge in clean manufacturing processes.
Taking all three parts of this online Ionization class will fill the requirement for the full length tutorial that is part of the ESDA Program Manager Certification curriculum. Details on the Professional Certification Programs offered by ESDA are on our website at www.esda.org/certification.html.
