SEMI E78 Guide to Electrostatic Compatibility


Guide to Assess and Control Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and

Electrostatic Attraction (ESA) for Equipment

The purpose of this guide is  to minimize the negative impact on productivity caused by electrostatic charge and  fields in  equipment used in semiconductor manufacturing.

The purpose of this reference document is to minimize the negative impact on productivity caused by electrostatic charge and fields in semiconductor manufacturing.  Electrostatic compatibility in the entire semiconductor factory is addressed in SEMI E129. A number of undesirable effects can be caused by electrostatic charge on surfaces that damages both products and reticles.  A combination of ESD events and charge on wafers and reticles can attract particulates  (ESA or electrostatic attraction) in the equipment and in the manufacturing/cleanroom environment.
