Dr. Min Zhang's latest blog: Validation of ESD Current Waveform Using an RF Current Probe
06 Dec 2023
Dr. Min Zhang's latest blog, "Validating ESD Current Waveform Using an RF Probe," offers a swift solution for a quick ESD waveform check.
EMC troubleshooting is a common task, and deviations in Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) simulator waveforms can pose challenges. This article, inspired by D. Smith's original method, swiftly checks if simulators align with expectations.
The setup comprises ground planes, an RF current monitor probe, and an oscilloscope. By focusing on waveform reliability rather than strict adherence to standards, this approach ensures efficient troubleshooting.
Discover more in Dr. Zhang's blog Validation of ESD Current Waveform Using an RF Current Probe, for a quick yet effective way to assess ESD simulator waveforms in EMC consulting.

EMC Standards is a world-leading resource for all things EMC and EMI related. Our website is packed full of both free and paid-for content, including:
- Online quiz
- Training quiz
- And much more!
Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
