Static Control

Insulators and Isolated Conductors   Wrist straps and work surface mats are some of the most common devices used to remove static charges. Wrist straps drain charges from operators and a properly grounded mat will provide path-to-ground for for exposed ESD susceptible devices . However, what if the static charge in question is on something…

At this point in our blog series concerning ESD Awareness, we should  consider some basic physics: Ohm’s law is an extremely useful equation in the field of electrical/electronic engineering because it describes how voltage, current, and resistance are interrelated. Ohm’s law states that, in an electrical circuit, the current passing through a conductor between two…
