Static electricity can be annoying to humans, but it’s deadly as lightning to microchips! TSSOP’s job is to read picture files from USB drives in a photo kiosk, and she sees lots of danger out there! But can she recover from this jolt?
Appendix pages explain the science and real history behind the adorable story, and how minor electrostatic sparks can cause failures and damage to electronic devices.
The perfect picture book for our littlest electrostatics engineers and technologists to be, as well as the teachers and parents who are looking for more resources to help them.
