How do Antistatic Bags Work?

Computer boards and sensitive electronic components need protection from electrostatic discharge, especially at the time of shipping, handling, and assembly. This requirement has led to the development of an entirely new class of antistatic packaging materials. Now, a multi-million dollar packaging industry exists, with major developments in polymers. These are special conductive polyethylene and other laminates covered with very thin metalized films. This packaging industry saves several hundred Read more [...]

Anti-static electronic component storage bins!

How Do You Store Your Electronic Components?

Storing and retrieving a large number of electronic components like capacitors, resistors, LEDs, transistors, diodes, ICs etc. can be a daunting task not only because they are tiny but also because extreme temperature and humidity can deteriorate their performance. They also need careful handling as they are fragile and the tips can break easily. In addition, electronic components need to be protected against static electricity. To keep static electricity from damaging your sensitive electronic Read more [...]
