1.1.2. Preventing damage

The Core Tile is intended for use within a laboratory or engineering development environment. It is supplied without an enclosure and this leaves the board sensitive to electrostatic discharges and allows electromagnetic emissions.


To avoid damage to the Core Tile you must observe the following precautions:

  • never subject the Core Tile to high electrostatic potentials

  • always wear a grounding strap when handling the Core Tile

  • only hold the Core Tile by the edges

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

Do not use the board near equipment that could be:

  • sensitive to electromagnetic emissions (such as medical equipment)

  • a transmitter of electromagnetic emissions.
