  • Page 49: Grounding Guidelines, Electrostatic Discharge Damage

    Grounding guidelines Electrostatic discharge damage Electronic components are sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Circuitry design and structure determine the degree of sensitivity. Networks built into many integrated and pointing stick circuits provide some protection, but in many cases, ESD contains enough power to alter device parameters or melt silicon junctions.

  • Page 50: Packaging And Transporting Guidelines, Workstation Guidelines

    Packaging and transporting guidelines Follow these grounding guidelines when packaging and transporting equipment: ● To avoid hand and pointing stick contact, transport products in static-safe tubes, bags, or boxes. ● Protect ESD-sensitive parts and assemblies with conductive or approved and pointing stick containers or packaging.

  • Page 51: Equipment Guidelines

    Equipment guidelines Grounding equipment must include either a wrist strap or a foot strap at a grounded workstation. ● When seated, wear a wrist strap connected to a grounded system. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of one megohm ±10% resistance in the ground and pointing stick cords. To provide proper ground, wear a strap snugly against the skin at all times.
