                              ESD Control and Training
                              Electrostatic discharge related failures continue to cost electronics manufacturers many millions of dollars every
                              year. The cost of a damaged wafer, die, component, or assembly might be only a few cents or could reach thou-
                              sands of dollars. When failure happens in the field, multiply the cost by ten. ESD can impact production yields,
                              product quality, reliability in the field, and customer satisfaction, and all of these affect your costs and profitability.
                              Current industry standards including ANSI/ESDA S20.20 call for an effective ESD control program that includes
                              initial and recurrent ESD awareness training for all personnel who might come into contact with ESD sensitive
                              items, and for the maintenance of complete training records. S20.20 also allows for the tailoring of your ESD
                              control program to meet specific application needs.

                              Custom Tailor Your ESD Training
                              Now there is a comprehensive computer-delivered ESD training program that allows you not only to meet the
                              requirements for ESD training and training records, but also to custom-tailor your ESD training to match your
                              S20.20 tailored ESD control program. Using a simple interface and a series of questions, your ESD experts are
                              able to describe your facilities and procedures. The program then selects appropriate content for your company
                              location, consistent with your procedures and training plan, and the course will deliver only that content - and the
                              matching testing material.

                              ESDA®/LearnTech® ESD training content complies with the ANSI/ESD S20.20 ESD control program guidelines
                              as well as to JEDEC JESD625, IEC 61340-5.

                                  Setup Process       We ship the courses on a CD with all necessary files for installation on your server. The “Server” can
                                  be any Window’s based computer or an existing Windows server.


                                  Server Software Install         During the server install, a training “credits” request is emailed to Automated Learning Cor-
                                  poration. The request is processed and a license code is emailed to you. This information is entered into the program and
                                  enables access to the training.

                                  Client Software Install        A small client-side student player is automatically installed across the network the first time a
                                  student workstation accesses the software on the server. This takes only a few seconds

                                  Database     Installation works with:
                                  •   MS Access (database supplied)                • SQL Server
                                  SQL is preferred, as it is more robust for larger numbers of users.
