ESD = Electrostatically Sensitive Devices

Many electronic devices are sensitive to electrostatic discharge, which could damage the device.

In order to prevent electrostatic discharge:

  • Shield the work environment
  • When repairing electronic devices always use anti-static strap to remove electrostatic buildup
  • Store or transport electronic devices (mobile phones, PCBs...) in anti-static bags.
  • Make sure that soldering device's ground wire properly connected
