||A device's ability to function properly in its operating environment without causing electromagnetic interference to other equipment, or itself being susceptible to external interference.
|Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
||Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
||The rapid spontaneous transfer of electrostatic charge, induced by a high electrostatic field.
|Electrostatic Discharge Sensitive devices (ESDS)
||Electrostatic Discharge Sensitive devices (ESDS)
||An electrostatic-sensitive device is any electrical component which can be damaged by common static charges which build up on people, tools, and other non-conductors or semiconductors.
||Dissipative materials allow the charges to flow to ground more slowly in a more controlled manner than with conductive materials.
||A discrete component that is fabricated as an integral part of a printed board.
|Environment Controlled Area
