Have you ever wondered why you get shocked sometimes when you reach for a doorknob? This is due to the effects of electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharge is the sudden flow of electricity when two charged objects become contiguous with one another. Often times, an electric spark is created during the occurrence of the phenomena. Electrostatic discharge can have a very harmfull effect on hardware, so extra protection is often necessary to keep everything safe.
