We measured in the frequency range from 300kHz to 6GHz of the transfer impedance of a commercially available calibration target newly developed for immunity testing against electrostatic discharges (ESDs) being prescribed by the International Electrotechnical Commission. The result showed that the transfer impedance has an almost flat frequency response up to 6GHz, while resonance phenomena were still observed at frequencies around 2.5 and 5GHz. With this result, the waveforms of injected currents onto the target were reconstructed from the observed output voltages for air discharges of an ESD generator with a charge voltage of 2kV.
