AN1607: Immunity to ESD
Abstract: This paper and discusses the requirements for Electro static discharge as outlined by the European
Norm standard EN 61000-4-2, and provides some design techniques for meeting these requirements.
Electrostatic Discharge , can be defined as the transfer of electric charge between bodies of different electrostatic potential in proximity or through direct contact. The transfer of charge from one body to the other happens when two bodies
have different charge particles (positive and negative).
