Reference EN 61340-5-1:2001
Title Electrostatics - Part 5-1: Protection of electronic devices from electrostatic phenomena - General requirements
Project Number 13076
Abstract/Scope Specifies the general requirements for the protection of electrostatic discharge sensitive devices (ESDS) from electrostatic discharges and fields. It applies only to the manufacture and use of electronic devices. Gives information on how to design, use and control a protected area to ensure that electrostatic sensitive devices, having a withstand threshold voltage of 100 V (human body model) or higher, can be handled with a minimum risk of damage resulting from electrostatic phenomena. Normal precautions given are applicable for areas with clean room types in excess of ISO 14644-1 class 5. Alternative precautions may be required in cleam rooms of ISO 14644-1 class 5 or less if contamination is formed as a result of using the procedures specified in this technical report.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
