Co-synthesizing of semiconductor chip architecture and floor planning with ESD design practices for analog, and mixed signal applications Illustrates the influence of analog design practices on ESD design circuitry, from integration, synthesis and layout, to symmetry, matching, inter-digitation, and common centroid techniques
ESD Circuits and Devices 2nd Edition is an essential reference to ESD, circuit semiconductor engineers and quality, reliability analysis engineers
Improved coverage of low-capacitance ESD, scaling of devices and oxide scaling challenges
Increased emphasis on system-level testing conforming to IEC 61000-4-2 and IEC 61000-4-5
Increased focus on ESD power clamps for power rails for CMOS, Bipolar, and BiCMOS
It is also useful for graduate and undergraduate students in electrical engineering, semiconductor sciences, microelectronics and IC design.
New features in the 2nd edition Expanded treatment of ESD and analog design of passive devices of resistors, capacitors, inductors, and active devices of diodes, bipolar junction transistors, MOSFETs, and FINFETs
