Basic ESD and I/O Design

Sanjay Dabral, Timothy J. Maloney

1998

328 pages

A text devoted to electrostatic discharge (ESD) and input/output (I/O) design.
The authors cover ESD protection methods such as silicon-controlled rectifiers
and thick-field-oxide clamps, small- chip ESD issues, hot-electron interactions,
circuit considerations such as compensation schemes and simultaneous
switching output noise, and ESD and I/O interactions. The emphasis is on
design principles that can be applied widely as the field continues to evolve.
Intended for engineers and others designing circuits, systems, or devices for
future technologies. Also of use as a reference for researchers and graduate
students involved in core VLSI design or computer architecture.

Book Description:
The first comprehensive guide to ESD protection and I/O design
Basic ESD and I/O Design is the first book devoted to ESD (electrostatic
discharge) protection and input/output design. Addressing the growing demand
in industry for high-speed I/O designs, it bridges the gap between ESD research
and current VLSI design practices and provides a much-needed reference for
practicing engineers who are frequently called upon to learn the subject on the
job.
 
This volume presents an integrated treatment of This volume presents an integrated treatment of ESD, I/O, and process parameter interactions that both I/O designers and process designers can use. It examines key factors in I/O and ESD design and testing, and helps the
reader consider ESD and reliability issues up front when making I/O choices.
Emphasizing clarity and simplicity, this book focuses on design principles
that can be applied widely as this dynamic field continues to evolve. Basic

Essential for engineers in industry and anyone designing circuits, systems, or
devices for future technologies, Basic ESD and I/O Design is also a useful
reference for researchers and graduate students involved in core VLSI design
or computer architecture.
