august 6 2012

Shocking Technologies, Inc., developer of the patented Voltage Switchable Dielectric (VSD) nano-composite material for protecting electronic products from electrostatic discharge (ESD) apprised that Viasystems (VIAS) and its recently acquired subsidiary DDi have been certified to produce printed circuit boards (PCBs) that utilize Shocking Tech's innovative Voltage Switchable Dielectric (VSD) material. Viasystems is recognized as a premier supplier to the automotive industries and also has large footprint in the Chinese electronics industry. The certification follows a period of successful evaluation of Shocking Tech's XStatic VSD material by Viasystems.

The XStatic material is embedded in PCBs to protect components and systems from harmful ESD events. Shocking Tech's XStatic solution reduces component count and frees up space for other functionality while simplifying design, improving ESD protection, and slashing development time.

"The XStatic solution continues to gain momentum as the world's leading PCB makers become familiar with it capabilities and ease of use. We are excited to have Viasystems, another major PCB manufacturer, certify and validate our approach and look forward to working with their customers to help them take advantage of the proven benefits XStatic offers," said Lex Kosowsky, President and CEO of Shocking Technologies.
