What makes embedded ESD detection critical?
Electronic Products » Automotive
by Emily Newton, contributing writer
2w ago
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage sensitive electronic components in several ways. First, the high voltage may cause internal damage and the rapid rise in temperature puts delicate electronics at risk of failure. Moreover, ESD that hits two active electronic components could cause shorting by establishing a connection between two normally separate parts. Embedded ESD detection can reduce these damaging events. Built-in detection offers numerous advantages in engineering and manufacturing environments. ESD effects are not always apparent immediately, and not all events cause permanent d ..read more
