The electrostatic discharge (ESD) phenomenon is a natural occurrence that can destroy sensitive electrical circuits, even in the smallest amounts. Part 1 of this paper explains why system-level ESD protection matters, providing insight on test models and strategies to improve system-level ESD protection in mobile devices. Part 2 provides tools to use for addressing system-level ESD, and Part 3 covers how to use system-efficient ESD design (SEED) methodology along with modeling and simulation to optimize system-level handset designs.
