Antistat walking 100 miles for #ThankYou100

The Royal British Legion recently launched a mass movement to say ‘Thank You’ to all who served, sacrificed, and changed our world during the First World War.  The campaign launched with a giant art installation on London’s South Bank in August and is due to run 100 days to 11th November. ‘Thank You’ aims to honour not only the 1.1 million British and Commonwealth Armed Forces who lost their lives in the First World War, but also those who played [...]

5 simple everyday tasks that can damage electronic components

Simple tasks such as walking on carpets or using stationery is not usually something we need to be cautious over, but when you are working with static sensitive components, the risks are very real. Electrostatic discharges (ESD) as low as 2,000 volts can often go un-noticed when transferred from a non-grounded person to a circuit board. If the static damage is not initially detected, it may be further down the supply chain before unexpected delays, and costly repairs are attributed [...]

Chips with Everything…

If we mentioned flops, teraflops and specifically 1,600 of them, the majority possibly won’t process (pun intended) the term. The measurement stands for floating point operations per second – and put simply, is a scale of how fast processors can compute data. Floating point arithmetics are needed for very large or very small real numbers or computations that require a large dynamic range – with us so far?  There are additionally Petaflops, but we’ll leave them out of the equation [...]

Pink antistatic bags – clearing up the confusion

Component or electronics assembly malfunction as a result of static discharge can often go unnoticed until it is too late – damage is sometimes only apparent when inspecting items under a microscope, or when testing an assembly – wasting precious time and delaying processes. One way to reduce risks of ESD events is by using pink antistatic bags. Pink antistatic bags are an ideal packaging solution for transporting non-ESD sensitive items in to an EPA. In fact they are the only [...]

Matting

Everything you need to know about ESD matting (probably)

As you’re reading this, chances are you already have an interest in Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) or work in an organisation with an EPA (an ESD Protected Area), in which case, you are probably already familiar with ESD matting. However, have you ever wondered how matting works, or why there are so many variants available? The How ESD or Static matting is designed to drain static discharge from items placed on its surface. It also serves to protect the surface of the [...]

Why Antistatic bags matter in manufacturing

ESD packaging, such as antistatic bags and static shielding bags, are some of the most important safety products used in manufacturing environments. Without these specialised packaging solutions, it would be virtually impossible to safely transport products and components from the production line to their final destination. However, despite their importance to ensure quality and reliability of product, there is still confusion about the differences between antistatic and static shielding bags. Let us clarify here ESD-focused packaging is always classified in one [...]
