    The most prolific example of ESD sensitive devices is Integrated Circuits, or ICs, meaning the circuitry is completely integrated within the body of the chip. Because of their exceedingly small transistors, the extremely high voltage that can be temporarily generated by an electrostatic discharge can overload the transistors and permanently destroy them.

    The category of integrated circuits encompass a broad range of products, including but not limited to central processing units, graphics processing units, digital radio receivers, surface-mount electronics (in some cases) and any other enclosed circuitry which is exceedingly small.

    Hope that helps!
