0 Replies and 2163 Views Article: PXA270 -- ESD Protection on the SOM  2163  0 Started by Q: Does the SOM have ESD protection A: No, the SOM does not have ESD protection. The reason for this is that the SOM was designed to be adaptable to many different applications, which makes it impractical to design in ESD protection. The SOM does not provide any ESD protection circuitry on the board and must be provided by the product it is used in. Logic PD has extensive experience in designing products with ESD requirements.
