An adjustable spark gap structure is designed to generate Secondary ESD. The primary and the secondary discharge current are directly measured. The setup is modelled using CST full-wave simulation software. The goal is to predict secondary ESD induced current levels using simulation methods, to assist designers in product development in the early design stage.
