Electrostatic discharge on ungrounded components

My understanding of ESD is that there has to exist a path to ground for static charges to discharge. Take a MOSFET as an example that is vulnerable to ESD and packaged in a way to protect against it, as long as the component is free standing or none of the leads is connected to […]
