1.1.2. Preventing damage

The baseboard is intended for use in a laboratory or engineering development environment. If removed from its enclosure, the board will become more sensitive to electrostatic discharges and will generate increased electromagnetic emissions.

Caution

To avoid damage, observe the following precautions:

  • never subject the board to high electrostatic potentials

  • always wear a grounding strap when touching the board in or away from its enclosure

  • avoid touching the component pins or any other metallic element

  • always power down the board when connecting Logic Tiles, memory expansion boards, or making external connections.

Caution

Do not use near equipment that is:

  • sensitive to electromagnetic emissions (such as medical equipment)

  • a transmitter of electromagnetic emissions.
