Electrostatic Discharge or ESD is a fact of everyday life and it is of particular importance in quality control programs of manufacturing industries.
Since the electronics boom of the 1980s, the awareness of ESD has risen considerably because it has been shown to have an effect on many devices. In fact many manufacturers today consider all components to be static sensitive, not just electronics components that are the most prone to damage. ESD can dramatically increase costs through equipment downtime, yield loss, process lockup, and an increase in warranty claims.
