I was a little disappointed to discover that I managed to fry a brand new Raspberry Pi camera module. After testing on multiple hardware and triple checking all the connectors, I was forced to conclude that I fried the module on board through static discharge.
Since then, I've ordered another one but I'm concerned I will also eventually kill the new one (these modules are particularly sensitive to static discharge) so I am thinking of buying or making some sort of enclosure for the module to help protect the sensitive electronics on board.
I understand there are precautions that should be taken when handling sensitive electronics such as wearing a earthed anti-static wrist-strap or touching a earthed water tap prior to handling.
However, what about when the device is installed? For example, will a plastic case build up enough static charge that will eventually discharge through the module? Should an enclosure be made of metal (and tied to the ground pin)? Will it be sufficient protection if I cut up pieces of an anti-static bag and wrap it around the module?
What are some measures I can take to prevent static discharge from being a problem?
