Glossary: Human Sensitivity

The threshold of human sensitivity to electrostatic discharge is approximately 3.5 kV. A discharge of only 500 volts, too minute for humans to see, hear or feel—or as low as 20 volts for ultra-sensitive high-speed electronics—can corrupt data and damage or destroy static-sensitive components.
