Why Do Electronics Need ESD Packaging?

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) refers to the flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects. When static electricity builds up, it can damage sensitive electronic devices.

ESD can make electronic components fail, erase or alter magnetic media, destroy sensitive electronics, even cause fires and explosions. Handling electronic components requires ESD-compliant protective gear, such as ESD table mats, wrist straps, ionization products and much more. Shipping ESD sensitive devices can even be more complex.

Five Expensive Losses Due to Static Electricity

Static electricity is at the heart of hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of electronic device and component damage. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause significant damage when it comes to computer components, destroying or fatally damaging expensive devices.

ESD can permanently erase or alter magnetic media, burn holes in integrated circuits, and destroy circuit boards. In extreme cases, a buildup of static electricity can even cause fires and explosions, if a spark occurs in a combustible atmosphere. Many ESD events, however, occur without a visible spark yet still cause severe electronic destruction.
