    Hello,

    I'm doing an University project for a company about PCB Spark gaps. They are free ESD protectors for your IC's because the only thing that you have to do is design it in your PCB model.

    My question is:
    Someone know if there is any software to simulate the different ESD tests like HBM, CDM, MM, from the computer? Because depending on the shape of it, the behaviour can be really different.
    I tried Quickfield, a FEM software that allows you to simulate a transient electric in the time domain but this is not still what I'm searching for.

    I attach here a youtube video in case someone wants to know more about PCB Spark Gaps:



    Thanks.
