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 path inside.
