It was in the late 70s and microprocessors were on everybody's lips, but few actually knew anything about them. I had set myself up as an expert, on the basis that the ...

The electrostatic discharge (ESD) ratings in component data sheets often confuse system designers by not specifying the actual standard to which a component was tested. The following explains the differences between the two most commonly applied ESD standards, the human body model (HBM) and the IEC 61000-4-2 standard.
