Title: Radio frequency and electrostatic discharge insensitive electro-explosive devices

Abstract: An electro-explosive device ("EED") having resistors fabricated on a thermally conductive substrate and interconnected by a central bridge element. The resistance of the bridge element is lower than that of the resistors, which have a larger surface area to volume ratio. The conductive bridge of the EED is overcoated with a composite overcoat comprising a metal and an oxidizer, which produce a chemical explosion upon plasma vaporization of the conductive bridge.
