Charged Board Events (CBE) Often Mistaken for Electrical Overstress (EOS)

I attended this CenTex ESDA presentation several weeks ago and found the presentation very eye opening.

"The speaker was Terry Welsher who explained his company's philosophy, reviewed ESD test procedures, provided a background of "Charged Board Events" (CBE), and explained how CBE is often mistaken for Electrical Over Stress. He showed how a CBE waveform is similar to the ESD Charged Device Model waveform, presented the CBE test results and damage, leading to the Industrial Standard/Best Practices status. His presentation generated intriguing discussion among the attendees. "

A link to Dangelmayer's publicly available version of the material can be reviewed here.
