Electrostatic Discharge Protection: Advances and Applications

Juin J. Liou
July 26, 2017

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is one of the most prevalent threats to electronic components. In an ESD event, a finite amount of charge is transferred from one object (i.e., human body) to another (i.e., microchip). This process can result in a very high current passing through the microchip within...
