A. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is an uncontrolled high voltage spike that is very short in duration. A common example of ESD is the static electricity build up a person stores when walking across carpet. The discharge in this example occurs when the person touches metal or another person. ESD is typically in the thousands of volts range and can cause severe damage to electrical circuits.

ESD can come from human contact as well as machine interface contact. These two sources are the basis of the industry ESD models.
