Static charge generation by three mechanisms is explained, including two which do not involve physical contact. The sensitivity of various component technologies to electrostatic discharge (ESD) is tabulated and myths about the effects of environment and level of assembly refuted. A three-part program of ESD prevention and protection for component manufacturers and users is proposed.
