The field sources, which are included in the probe set field coupling 200 ps Langer ESD, generate very fast electric and magnetic ESD pulse fields. With these fields, ICs are defined and reproducibly pulsed to determine their immunity against ESD fields.
The reason for this is the ESD immunity of PC boards and electrical devices. The immunity is tested (IEC 61000-4-2). During the tests, standard ESD pulse fields and very fast electric and magnetic fields (200 ps) are generated by coupled ESD interference into the PC boards. These fields affect the PC board surface and penetrate the IC casings. If fields penetrate the ICs, disturbance events will be generated. The IC interference via magnetic or electrical fields is a significant source of interference path in addition to conducted coupling of ESD interference above the ICs.
From the probe set, knowledge will be gained of the IC EMC behaviour and this can be streamlined into the development of the PC board.
Expensive redesigns are avoided and development costs are reduced.
Furthermore, the use of the test methods for the determination of IC EMC parameters enables the IC producer to develop ICs more efficiently.
The test set-up needs the ICE1 test system and external devices.

The BPS 203 Burst Power Station is used as high voltage supply and control unit for ESD-probes. The unit control is connected to the user PC via an USB-interface. The control is realized by the BPS 203-client software.
The BPS 203-client software is used to control the BPS 203 Burst Power Station and thereby the connected probe. The software is installed on the user PC.
The BPM 02 is a dB/dt field meter and it is used to measure the temporal change of the magnetic field strength characteristics dB/dt up to 3 GHz. The lower limit frequency depends on the measurement set-up.
The EPM 02 is suitable for the measurement of fast transients with a bandwidth up to 3 GHz. The dE/dt field meter doesn't have a lower limit frequency. Depending on the noise limit of the used measuring device the usage of the EPM 02 is limited in the lower frequency range. For example, at a noise …
