Electrostatic discharge is a primary concern for electronic assemblies from the integrated
circuit level right up to the end product. Much science and engineering has gone into
developing protection circuitry and handling techniques to reduce the likelihood of damage
by ESD. A vital aspect of electrostatic discharge susceptibility is related to
shielding of the microcircuits that have increasingly small gate widths and dielectric
thicknesses. Huge amounts of resources have been invested in mitigating the effects of
ESD. One part of the solution is to adequately shied the circuitry that does not have
direct exposure to the outside world. Part of the qualification for ESD ruggedness of
a final product is to zap (that's actually a technical term) the chassis in multiple
locations to be sure there are no breaches in shielding that will permit a discharge
