Electrostatic Discharge (BSD) is a problem in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) that can lead to serious interruption of digital PCB circuit performance. This paper presents an analysis of the noise induced in the digital circuit and characterizes the BSD effect as the non-linear magnetic saturation property of metallic enclosures. The current distribution of the metallic enclosures is first evaluated, and the noise voltage induced in the PCB within the enclosed space is then estimated.
