EPI has pioneered a new technology for controlling the negative effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD) on sensitive electronic components. This seemingly mundane issue has been estimated to cost the global electronics industry as much as $84 billion in annual product losses. With the emergence of smaller electronic devices operating at higher frequencies and lower power levels (e.g. multifunction cell phones, packed memory arrays, micro and signal processors) the need for increased ESD protection superior to what is currently available has become more critical. In fact, since conditions for static discharge are everywhere, any electronic device can benefit from improved ESD protection.
