ESD: Circuits and Devices 2nd Edition provides a clear picture of layout and design of digital, analog, radio frequency (RF) and power applications for protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD), electrical overstress (EOS), and latchup phenomena from a generalist perspective and design synthesis practices providing optimum solutions in advanced technologies.
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.
Increased focus on ESD power clamps for power rails for CMOS, Bipolar, and BiCMOS.
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.
Increased emphasis on system-level testing conforming to IEC 61000-4-2 and IEC 61000-4-5.
Improved coverage of low-capacitance ESD, scaling of devices and oxide scaling challenges.
ESD: Circuits and Devices 2nd Edition is an essential reference to ESD, circuit & semiconductor engineers and quality, reliability &analysis engineers. It is also useful for graduate and undergraduate students in electrical engineering, semiconductor sciences, microelectronics and IC design.
