# What could cause a 30 k g acceleration?

I'm reading the specs of an IC (Cypress 5LP SoC) and it says it's available in 30 k g shock resistance configuration. The fastest acceleration I heard of so far was hitting a golf ball hard, which would be around 1000 g. Does anyone have an example of a mechanical impact of 30 000 g (300 000 m$\cdot$s$^2$), applicable to electronics devices?

I've always loved the Orders of magnitude articles on wikipedia. There is one for acceleration too –  artistoex May 16 '13 at 12:35
