Sometimes question comes how to measure ESD . It can be measured through Voltmeter and it can measure electrostatic voltage upto 30,000V. This meter will also identify postive and negative charges . There can be different ways to avoid or reduce this ESD.

1. Keeping synthetic material 4inch away from electronic devices.

2.Using static floor mats where necessary

3.Treat carpets and floors with compounds that drop down static charges .

And many more .

ESD floor mat can prevent electronic devices from being damaged by any electrostatic charge.

There are different sources of static electricity :

1. Waxed floors , vinyle tile on surfaces and so on .

2. Finished wood chairs, vinyle  and fibre glass.

3.Synthetic clothes, nylon etc

4.Common plastic bags, trays and so on

If we walk on carpeted floor in a heated room the shock we experience when we touch door knob is static electricity .

Perhaps you didn't know that there are a variety of classes, both live and archived, offered via the Design News Continuing Education Center (CEC) sponsored by Digi-Key? The best part – they are free!
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
We Have FPGAs with On-chip MCUs, but How About MCUs with On-chip FPGAs?
Programmable logic has come a long way from the simple devices we started out with. Remember Programmable Array Logic, or PALs? But where will we be in the next five to 10 years?
As industrial applications increasingly use process control systems utilizing sensor feedbacks to monitor various operating parameters, energy sources and consumption are becoming major factors of a system.
