By attaining ESD certification, this demonstrates that electronic component distributor Quest Components, Inc. puts the highest level of importance in protecting all devices that are subject to damage from electro-static discharge. We apply this process in all steps of storage, handling, inspection and shipping providing complete protection to these devices.
Improperly handled devices that are subjected to electro-static discharge can be damaged internally. Sometimes this damage shows up immediately once the component is intially tested on the circuit board it was mounted on. Other, and more worrisome, are the components that pass initial testing, but fail prematurely in the field. These devices may have suffered some damage, but not enough to make the part fail in initial testing. This kind of failure is the worst kind as the end product is already in use in the field and repair costs become very high at this point.
OEMs and CMs that partner with us are assured that all devices that are sensitive to electro-static discharge are handled and stored with the utmost care and concern for the ESD health of the component. Once our customers receive the critical parts they need for their all-important end products, they are confident that all precautions have been exercised.
Rich Harn, Quality Manager for Quest Components states “Achieving ESD S20.20 certification is an important milestone in our continued efforts to provide the highest level of quality in the components we deliver to our end customers.”
