Simulator Eases Design For EMC Compatibility (EMC)

To help protect smart devices by making statically-dangerous locations safer from electrostatic discharge (ESD), the ESD-SIM software tool guides designers in the proper selection of protection components for integrated-circuit designs from the beginning. Exposed ports such as USB or HDMI sockets are especially vulnerable to ESD. The protection circuitry needed to handle ESD energy often requires testing with a real prototype where late design changes add to costs and cause delays. The free online software tool is capable of assessing both circuit protection and signal integrity, to help select the right ESD-protection components from ST’s portfolio before hardware is built. ESD-SIM is available now, free of charge to any registered user. For further information, go to
