Aurora ESD – the material that protects sensitive components

Victoria Malmgren3D-skrivareLeave a Comment

Aurora ESD

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a rapid, spontaneous transfer of electrostatic charge from one object to another. Albeit not dangerous to humans, these small zaps can destroy sensitive electronic equipment like PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) and microchips. Hence, these components will need to be protected by ESD-safe materials. Here we describe ESD in combination with sensitive electronic parts, and what the … Läs mer
