@Bart: Very interesting analysis an information for ESD. I have one query. Many ICs have built-in ESD protection for say up to 8kV e.g. RS232 XCVR. However, many designers in general use additional external discrete ESD protection for these devices. Why? Is this required?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
