3.4 Electrically initiated device (EID). An EID is a single
unit, device, or subassembly that uses electrical energy to produce an
explosive, pyrotechnic, thermal, or mechanical output. Examples include:
electroexplosive devices (such as hot bridgewire, semiconductor bridge, carbon
bridge, and conductive composition), exploding foil initiators, laser
initiators, burn wires, and fusible links.
