Proper #oscilloscope setup for correct ESD measurements

Proper #oscilloscope setup for correct ESD measurements

Automotive electronic components are designed to have, and are tested to determine, a certain level of immunity to ESD (electrostatic discharge). The tests address a variety of conditions the components will encounter including packaging, handling, vehicle assembly/service, and intended operation. To properly test any system, subsystem, or IC, you need to measure the voltage waveform used to test a DUT. Unfortunately, typical oscilloscope setups can yield incorrect results. You need to know how to properly trigger an oscilloscope. Plus, you need to get the most from an oscilloscope's vertical resolution to maximize test results. Automotive EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) specifications typically reference ISO 10605:2008 in describing test setups, procedures, and equipment. Equipment includes an ESD simulator whose components such as the RC networks produce waveforms th...
