Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus, system, and method are disclosed for protecting a biological system (104) from molecular damage due to electrostatic discharge. The apparatus, system, and method include an electrical contact point (106), a resistive element (108), and a connection point (110). The electrical contact point (106) is positioned to facilitate electrical communication with the biological system (104). The resistive element (108) is coupled to the electrical contact point (110). The resistive element (108) has an electrical resistive value tuned to drain electrostatic charge from the biological system (104) based on a contact time of the electrical contact point (106) with the biological system (104). The connection point (110) is coupled to the resistive element (108) to create an electrical potential difference across the resistive element (108) in response to the contact of the electrical contact point (106) with the biological system (104).

L'invention concerne un appareil, un système et un procédé de protection d'un système biologique contre des dommages moléculaires dus à une décharge électrostatique. L'appareil, le système et le procédé comprennent un point de contact électrique (106), un élément résistif (108) et un point de connexion (110). Le point de contact électrique (106) est positionné pour faciliter la communication électrique avec le système biologique (104). L'élément résistif (108) est couplé au point de contact électrique (110). L'élément résistif (108) a une valeur de résistance électrique accordée pour drainer une charge électrostatique provenant du système biologique (104) sur la base d'un temps de contact du point de contact électrique (106) avec le système biologique (104). Le point de connexion (110) est couplé à l'élément résistif (108) pour créer une différence de potentiel électrique à travers l'élément résistif (108) en réponse au contact du point de contact électrique (106) avec le système biologique (104).
