A comparative study of the effects of ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) on digital and analog circuits is carried out. Direct and Indirect discharge is performed on the circuit having both analog and digital circuitry. First the Indirect discharge on the ground plane is done for different voltages and distances. Then the direct air discharge is performed near the digital and discreet analog circuitry. These results are compared and the effect of electrostatic discharge over digital and analog circuits is summarized from the experimental results.
