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…

ESD damage is not always visible to the naked eye. ESD damage to electronic components can be: • Catastrophic Failures • Latent Defects Catastrophic failure causes a failure in an ESD sensitive item that is permanent. The ESD event may have caused a metal melt, junction breakdown or oxide failure. Normal inspection is able to detect a catastrophic…
