1.3.2. Preventing electrostatic damage

The Integrator system is intended for use within a laboratory or engineering development environment. Because it is supplied without an enclosure, it is sensitive to electrostatic discharges and electromagnetic emission.


To avoid damage to the boards you must observe the following precautions:

  • Never subject the boards to high electrostatic potentials.

  • Always wear a grounding strap when handling the boards.

  • Only hold the boards by the edges.

  • Avoid touching the component pins or any other metallic element.

Do not use the boards near equipment that could be:

  • sensitive to electromagnetic emissions (such as medical equipment)

  • a transmitter of electromagnetic emissions.
