The problems surrounding automation-caused ESD damage differ considerably from those typically encountered in the manufacturing process. First, the damage done by automated systems is usually because of a charged device instead of a human body. Secondly, the repetitious nature of automation can systematically damage or, worse yet, partially damage large quantities of devices, and thereby create a serious quality and reliability problem. The third major difference between automation damage and the typical ESD problem concerns the solution: more engineering skill is needed to eliminate, or at least minimize, automation-caused ESD damage.
