ESD, EMC sensitivity of IC

Posted: 10 Jun 2013     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:electrostatic discharge  electromagnetic fields  sensitivity 

Integrated circuits are sensitive to electrostatic discharge (a sudden and short-time flow of currents) and electromagnetic fields (at which they can be source or victim of both of it).

This application note shall be understood as an introductive basic description of

 • What electrostatic discharge is
 • How sensitive devices can be protected against electrostatic discharges
 • What electromagnetic compatibility means
 • How electromagnetic sensitivity can be tested.
However, by no means, this application note does not substitute any of the corresponding engineering standards and standard operation procedures.
