PCB ESD discharge | 4 July, 2016

I have some boards which are charged with electrostatic and which are not connected to any voltage source. I am removing all the electrostatic charge by grounding them using a very similar technology to that of ESD mats.

Is there any standard which specifies the minimum discharge time for the PCBs or the components?

Can you use your field meter to measure the level of charge on your boards?

Yes I can use my field meter. But is there a standard which specifies the minimum electrostatic discharge time for the PCBs or for the components?

Depending on the Capacitors I will wait at least 15 seconds to be safe.
