Understand the dangers of Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) and Electro-static Over-stress (EOS) - one-day course

ESD station at Electronics YorkshireAs portable equipment, such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets, are getting smaller, with more functions being added, the operation voltages for components are becoming much lower. In these circumstances, whether building or repairing such equipment, avoiding the dangers of ESD/EOS is essential.

ESD/EOS is a major cause of damage to electronics components. This course ensures staff understand how ESD is the unseen enemy, why it must be eliminated and what steps need to be taken to prevent catastrophe.
