Subject: ESD Sensitivity
I find most IC data books state ESD testing using Mil-STD-883 Method 3015. HBM (2KV, 100pF, 1.5kohm, 10ns). Although production has ESD protection in place, but I'm interested to know the ESD sensitivity of various type of components at low humidity (during winter time ?% RH). 1) CMOS 2) TTL 3) JFET 4) power supply regulator 5) power amplifier 6) diode, bi-polar transistor 7) capacitor, inductor, resistor If there are no data available, please advise me realistically whether ESD protection is a must for these components type, especially for analog PCBA with just regulator, amplifier, non-chip components (diode, transistor, capcitor, resistor). Thanks.
