RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

TLP measures matter - RF Cafe Forums
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

In few days i'm gonna
begin some TLP measures and modelling, i've been said that the voltage
measurements is rather easy to do, but that there would be some difficulties
in current measurements. Does someone know why? what could it be? I'm
searching the net for information and no clue about the difference that
Thanx a lot

your use of the TLP system for doing ESD testing? I have not performed
TLP testing, but have sat in a couple classes for it and work with folks
who do use a TLP tester for semiconductor ESD protection design. I do
not recall ever hearing about current measurements being more troublesome
than voltage measurements.

fact i misunderstood. There weren't a big deal with current measurements.
And yes it's for ESD testing. Do you know were i could find information
about components characteristics using TLP methods ?
