Hi
I am about to start using the CC2500 chip and while reading the manual I read "ESD precaution should be taken". Should I take this warning seriously or I can just ignore it (because it is written on most of the electronic components).
Did any one had troubles with ESD when working with the CC2500 or you were able to handle them just like a resistor ?

Thx

Hi

the CC2500 has only >500V ESD voltage protection on-chip, according to the datasheet. Normally Yous Havel 2kV vor More. It is definitely recommended to take more precaution then on other ICs! A normal resister can most likely not damaged by ESD.

Enjoy your design work!
