If they wanted to hit a specific data line, they should have used a clip and wire to direct the charge.

This is more or less what I do for a job! Using specialized equipment, I take micro-chips and zap them, most failing under 2kV. I don't really have a computer background nor electrical background so I'm trying to learn what all goes through in the process. Ironically enough, I originally watched Linus's video before starting there and now I've seen yours! I appreciate all you do to show beginners what all the devices around us do, and what we take for granted, very interesting stuff!

Hi, I think you guys were "to positive" and "pulled"the energy. If you rather touched the guntip to a normal earth/ground, and then grounded the gun(I assume it has a ground clamp ) to your body, then the energy-impact would be "pushing" on the circuitboard rather than on you. Like welding, if you want to heat your tool, you go negative ground. If you want to heat the object, you go positive ground. Or if you want to kill a sandcastle on the beach.. You cant kill it with low-tide =)

Putting ram in a motherboard and powering it does not test functionality. Even a POST memory test just counts the addressable space. You need to set each bit low, and high, and reread the values; and even then you can hit some issues that show intermittently.

The body has its own series impedance which reduces the current to the RAM compared with direct connection. Also depending on footwear etc the body capacitance to ground is of the order of 200 pF so there is not much charge delivered. I think you have conclusively proven that current kills chips not voltage.

How does Express VPN Launch up? I currently have NordVPN and they recently changed their Login to require Web Browser login then link to app to access the VPN Service, which is a bit Pointless considering it doesn't open a "Private window" so any 'Add-on" get my Activity as well as any trackers on the Browsers main Page and Nords Website. NordVPN also had a possible Exploit last year that they "Fixed" but still they held onto that knowledge longer then they should have and trust for them have depleted.

In the first times of MOS technology, I mean NMOS, PMOS, those components are very sensitive to ESD. Nowadays those old technologies have disappeared and are replaced by CMOS with shottky diodes at the input, eventually protecting from little discharge, and you first need to blow one of those diode to kill the circuit behind at the end

It’s a dumb test… ram is extremely sensitive to static. The way ram works is a cell that includes a transistor and capacitor for each bit. Over voltage on a capacitor is extremely bad because it will short or worse.. explode. You can take out a huge portion of the chip with one fault in the array of cells. Would love to see if “curiousmark” a electronics engineer and computer scientist on youtube (most known for his xerox alto work and the Apollo guidance computer work) unlid the ram and show the damage on a microscope.
