ID-914 Surface Resistance Meter


ID-914 Surface Resistance Meter
The IDB Model ID-914 is a next generation
Surface Resistance Meter designed to provide
accurate and reproducible measurements of
surface resistance of antistatic and static
dissipative material.
ID-914 Surface Resistance Meter
Building on the success of the popular ID-482 and ID-482A Surface
resistance Meters, the ID-914 is a next generation
microprocessor-based instrument which has been developed to
measure the surface resistance of materials used in static free
work stations and for semiconductor packaging. The instrument
consists of a mains powered circuit housed in a robust bench
mounting case coupled by 1 metre of cable to a sensing probe
The sensitivity of semiconductor devices to electrostatic damage
(ESD) by even low levels of static electricity is now a wellestablished fact. Static electricity is generated when nonconducting surfaces are separated and assembly operators can
generate thousands of volts during routine handling of
semiconductor devices. For this reason it is now standard practice
to carry out semiconductor packaging and assembly only at static
free work stations and such stations must have charge dissipative
work surfaces, floor and seat coverings etc.
Standards now exist for the
materials suitable for use in
static free work stations and
for packaging.
The electrical conductivity is achieved by the addition of carbon
black or ionisable material to the bulk of the material, by surface
treatment or by adding conducting fibres to the surface layer.
The resistance of such material however may change significantly
during service due to wear or ageing and it is therefore necessary
to ensure that the materials are still effective by carrying out tests
at regular intervals.
The instrument complies with the requirements of BS EN 11493:2004. The equipment includes an integrated sample holder and
dot matrix display making the unit simple to operate in either a
standalone configuration or connected to a PC or Laptop via a USB
Type A to Type B cable
