MSP430 ESD Mitigation recommendations?
I'm considering using the MSP430 series in some new designs for temperature measurement and control running off of a 4-20mA current loop. Since this is an industrial application, are there any ESD recommendations for implementing the MSP430 family in this type of application?
Any feedback or input is welcomed and appreciated!
Thanks and regards,
I would refer you to the MSP430 System-Level ESD Considerations App Note:
This application report addresses three different ESD topics to help board designers and OEMs understand and design robust system-level designs:
1. Component-level ESD testing and system-level ESD testing, their differences, and why componentlevel ESD rating does not ensure system-level robustness.
2. General design guidelines for system-level ESD protection at different levels including enclosures, cables, PCB layout, and on-board ESD protection devices.
3. Introduction to System Efficient ESD Design (SEED, which is a co-design methodology of on-board and on-chip ESD protection to achieve system-level ESD robustness) with example simulations and test results.
Two real-world system-level ESD protection design examples and their results are also discussed.
Excellent! Thanks so much!
