A. The most common place to protect against ESD is at the interface sections of the circuit. This is where a connector is used to interface one module to another part of the system. Design Engineers typically use ceramic capacitors as ESD protection capacitors at connector pins and communication pins. The entire module may be subject to a module level ESD requirement while the capacitors may or may not also be required to meet a component level ESD requirement. The end customer is most concerned with the module level requirement since it is up to the Design Engineer to decide what component level requirements are needed to guarantee the module level requirements.
