Electrostatic discharge (ESD) control
It's my understanding that electrostatic discharge (ESD) can quietly zap electronic components. I'm looking for advice on best practices for controlling ESD when opening up a device. Mostly interested in ideas for the home DiYer or casual tinkerer, for operations like installing memory or hard drives.
What's a good, practical set-up for a home work area? Wrist-straps and anti-static mats are almost certainly involved, but what's the correct way to use them? Other special tools?
