On Secondary ESD Event Monitoring and Full-Wave Modeling Methodology
An adjustable spark gap structure is designed to generate Secondary ESD. The primary and the secondary discharge current are directly measured. The setup is modelled using CST full-wave simulation software. The goal is to predict secondary ESD induced current levels using simulation methods, to assist designers in product development in the early design stage.
