Mike,

Where do you think we are heading in ESD protection issues. Any new issues on the radar scope?

Hello Ryan, I'll be completely honest, I haven't seen anything on the radar scope but I haven't been tuned to ESD issues. Everything I've seen in the industry ranges from complete compliance with Class 10,000 clean rooms to questionable use of foot straps. As products dictate and customers demand ISO compliance, electronics assemblers make their own determination of ESD importance. I'm sure as new more sensitive device technology is introduced, we'll realize that ESD is more important than we think. Let me know if you require additional assistance. Thanks!
