Sigrity Tech Tip: How to Simulate the Impact of ESD and Determine How Many TVS Diodes are Necessary

September 25, 2018 Team EMA

Sigrity technologists guide you step by step on how to apply an Electro Static Discharge (ESD) gun model to simulate an ESD event on a printed circuit board. Learn how passive components such as transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes can protect your design from an ESD event without overdesigning the protection scheme. By utilizing the ESD simulation workflow early in the design cycle, you will bring your cost-effective prototype to the lab with confidence you can avoid time-consuming lab debug and re-design because of unveiled ESD issues.
