Reference EN 60749-27:2006/A1:2012
Title Semiconductor devices - Mechanical and climatic test methods - Part 27: Electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitivity testing - Machine model (MM)
Project Number 23706
Abstract/Scope Establishes a standard procedure for testing and classifying semiconductor devices according to their susceptibility to damage or degradation by exposure to a defined machine model (MM) electrostatic discharge (ESD). It may be used as an alternative test method to the human body model ESD test method. The objective is to provide reliable, repeatable ESD test results so that accurate classifications can be performed. This test method is applicable to all semiconductor devices and is classified as destructive

Superseded by  
Normative reference (6)  

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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