Theoretical and Experimental Investigation of Electrostatic Discharge Phenomena in High-speed PCB

by Huang, Yi-Shang

Abstract (Summary)
In this work, based on both experimental and theoretical approach, the contact ESD behavior on a PCB circuit is investigated. The discharge mechanisms of ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) phenomena are discussed by both practical measurement and mathematic analysis. Simplified mathematic models include CR-R¡BCR-C and CR-L are proposed to explain the low frequency phenomena of ESD discharge events. Moreover, some experimental setups with good repeatability are demonstrated for measuring the ESD-induced noise on high-speed PCB and some countermeasures are suggested to reduce ESD damage.
