While this treatment is not exhaustive, it presents many of the most important areas of the ESD problem and suggests methods for improving them. The key topics covered include the physics of the event, failure analysis, protection, characterization, and simulation techniques. The book is intended as both an introductory text on ESD and a useful reference tool to draw on as the reader gains experience. The authors have tried to balance the level of detail in the ESD Design and Analysis Handbook against the wealth of literature published on ESD every year. To that end, each chapter has a topical list of references to facilitate further in-depth study.
