Latest Updated:07/01/2006

Question:

What is the electrostatic tolerance of a bipolar transistor (Human Body Model (HBM) and Machine Model (MM))?

Answer:

Electrostatic tolerance is not specified for transistors.
In Japan, information on electrostatic tolerance can be found in Renesas Electronics Reliability Report available from Renesas Electronics distributors. In the other areas, please inquire it to a Renesas Electronics branch near you.
For information on the Human Body Model (HBM) and Machine Model (MM), please refer to 6.4 Cautions on ESDs (Electrostatic Discharges) in the Review of Quality and Reliability Handbook.
