discharge is a primary concern for electronic assemblies from the integrated circuit level right up to the end product.
Much science and engineering has gone into developing protection circuitry and handling techniques to reduce the
likelihood of damage by ESD. A vital aspect of electrostatic discharge susceptibility is related to shielding
of the microcircuits that have increasingly small gate widths and dielectric thicknesses. Huge amounts of resources
have been invested in mitigating the effects of ESD. One part of the solution is to adequately shied the circuitry
that does not have direct exposure to the outside world. Part of the qualification for ESD ruggedness of a final
product is to zap (that's actually a technical term) the chassis in multiple locations to be sure there are no breaches
in shielding that will permit a discharge path inside.
