App Note: Damage from a lightning bolt depends on how tall you are

in app notes by DP | 0 comments

This app note from Maxim describes how to battle electrostatic discharge (ESD). The article explains the theory behind ESD, how it’s generated, and gives suggestions on how to prevent it from destroying your electronic devices.

In this tutorial, we will discuss ways to protect printed circuit boards (PCBs) against ESD destruction. We will show that analog parts with bigger geometries are the best to use to protect a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) with their small geometries..

Via the forum. Thanks Rsdio!
