Temperature Dependence of Electrical Overstress

Posted by Craig Hillman on Aug 30, 2016 8:12:13 PM

Electrical overstress is typically defined as an over voltage or over current event with a duration exceeding 100 to 1000 nanoseconds and nominal durations of 1 millisecond that occurs while the device is in operation. It is typically differentiated from electrostatic discharge (ESD), which has a shorter duration (1 nanosecond to 1 microsecond) and is primarily an issue during non-operational manufacturing and handling.1, 2 Events that can lead to EOS damage include voltage spikes, lightning strikes and any temporary and unexpected connections to power or ground.
