About this book
This book deals with the influence of electrostatic discharges upon electronic components and systems and how to avoid it. The nature and the generation of static electricity is described with historical notes. The interaction between ESD and electronics is penetrated. Simulation models are given and ESD-failures including so called latent failures accounted for. Other forms of perturbation as EMI, EMC and noise are outlined. The influence on the human organism by electrostatic and electromagnetic fields has also been paid attention. Thest models and ESD protection methods are important parts of the book. Reference is made to existing international norms on ESD, EMC etc. Estimates on cost and cost saving by protection are quoted. (Disbursement and gain.) The book is applicable for anyone engaged with modern electronics as designers, protection and service technicians as well as users of electronic systems. Educational purposes can also be suggested.
