What would you use as a ground? A metal table leg, the screw on a receptacle plate? Thanks guys.Hello there
All MOS devices have insulated gates that are subject to voltage breakdown
When lead-straightening or hand-soldering is required, provide ground straps for the apparatus used and be sure that soldering ties are grounded.
Do not exceed the maximum ratings specified in the data sheet.
All unused device inputs should be connected to VDD or Vss All low-impedance equipment (pulse generators, etc) should be connected to CMOS inputs only after the device is energized
I would only be repeating what my superiors have already mentioned. Soooo I will mix it up and make it my own.Think of ESDWhat would you use as a ground? A metal table leg, the screw on a receptacle plate?
Thanks to all of you!I would only be repeating what my superiors have already mentioned. Soooo I will mix it up and make it my own.Think of ESD
(Electrostatic discharge) the same as you would walk across a carpet in your socks you come across a closed door you extend your arm and reach for the doorknob and you get a shock, it's exactly what happens if you don't use ESD protection. the anti-static mat and wrist strap actually dissipates or slows down that static shock by placing a one mega ohm resistor in series from both your wrist strap and anti-static mat to ground. I hope that makes sense to you. Electronics is about having fun and after you master the dissipation of potential difference of energy I'll show you how to make very large sparks on purpose.
