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 [...]

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 [...]

What’s in a Glove?

And it’s more than just a hand…!  While we all know that antistatic and conductive gloves perform a variety of purposes – not only preventing damage from ESD but also providing protection from grease, dust and particle contamination in high-spec production and cleanroom environments – are you always 100% certain about which type of glove will best suit your needs? Within the world of ESD Protected Areas (EPAs) gloves are worn during one of two processes: Handling or Assembly. When Handling, [...]
