Book Description :

Failures caused by electrostatic discharges (ESD) constitute a major problem concerning the reliability and robustness of integrated circuits and electronic systems. This book summarizes the many diverse methodologies aimed at ESD protection and shows, through a number of concrete studies, that the best approach in terms of robustness and cost-effectiveness consists of implementing a global strategy of ESD protection. ESD Protection Methodologies begins by exploring the various normalized test techniques that are used to qualify ESD robustness as well as characterization and defect localization methods aimed at implementing corrective measures. Due to the increasing complexity of integrated circuits, it is important to be able to provide a simulation in which the implemented ESD protection strategy provides the desired protection, while not harming the performance levels of the circuit. Therefore, the main features and difficulties related to the different types of simulation, finite element, SPICE-type and behavioral, are then studied. To conclude, several case studies are presented which provide real-life examples of the approaches explained in the previous chapters and validate a number of the strategies from component to system level. Provides a global ESD protection approach from component to system, including both the proposal of investigation techniques and predictive simulation methodologies Addresses circuit and system designers as well as failure analysis engineers Provides the description of specifically developed investigation techniques and the application of the proposed methodologies to real case studies

This book addresses key aspects of analog integrated circuits and systems design related to system level electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection. It is an invaluable reference for anyone developing systems-on-chip (SoC) and systems-on-package (SoP), integrated with system-level ESD protection. The book focuses on both the design of semiconductor integrated circuit (IC) components with embedded, on-chip system level protection and IC-system co-design. The readers will be enabled to bring the system level ESD protection solutions to the level of integrated circuits, thereby reducing or completely eliminating the need for additional, discrete components on the printed circuit board (PCB) and meeting system-level ESD requirements. The authors take a systematic approach, based on IC-system ESD protection co-design. A detailed description of the available IC-level ESD testing methods is provided, together with a discussion of the correlation between IC-level and system-level ESD testing methods. The IC-level ESD protection design is demonstrated with representative case studies which are analyzed with various numerical simulations and ESD testing. The overall methodology for IC-system ESD co-design is presented as a step-by-step procedure that involves both ESD testing and numerical simulations.

Book Description :

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is one of the most prevalent threats to electronic components. In an ESD event, a finite amount of charge is transferred from one object (i.e., human body) to another (i.e., microchip). This process can result in a very high current passing through the microchip within a very short period of time. Thus, more than 35 percent of single-event chip damages can be attributed to ESD events, and designing ESD structures to protect integrated circuits against the ESD stresses is a high priority in the semiconductor industry. Electrostatic Discharge Protection: Advances and Applications delivers timely coverage of component- and system-level ESD protection for semiconductor devices and integrated circuits. Bringing together contributions from internationally respected researchers and engineers with expertise in ESD design, optimization, modeling, simulation, and characterization, this book bridges the gap between theory and practice to offer valuable insight into the state of the art of ESD protection. Amply illustrated with tables, figures, and case studies, the text: Instills a deeper understanding of ESD events and ESD protection design principles Examines vital processes including Si CMOS, Si BCD, Si SOI, and GaN technologies Addresses important aspects pertinent to the modeling and simulation of ESD protection solutions Electrostatic Discharge Protection: Advances and Applications provides a single source for cutting-edge information vital to the research and development of effective, robust ESD protection solutions for semiconductor devices and integrated circuits.

Book Description :

It is the main objective of this work to address the scaling and design challenges of ESD protection in deeply scaled technologies. First, the thesis introduces the on-chip ESD events, the scaling and design challenges, and the nomenclatures necessary for later chapters. The ESD design window and the I/O schematics for both rail clamping and local clamping ESD schemes are illustrated. Then, the thesis delves into the investigation of the input and output driver devices and examines their robustness under ESD. The input driver's oxide breakdown levels are evaluated in deeply scaled technologies. The output driver's trigger and breakdown voltages are improved appreciably by applying circuit and device design techniques. The ESD device sections first discuss rail-based clamping, a widely used protection scheme. Two diode-based devices, namely the gated diode and substrate diode, are investigated in detail with SOI test structures. Characterization is based on DC current-voltage (I-V), Very Fast Transmission Line Pulse (VF-TLP), capacitance, and leakage measurements. Improvements in performance are realized. Technology computer aided design (TCAD) simulations help understand the physical effects and design tradeoffs. Then, the following section focuses on the local clamping scheme. Two devices, the field-effect diode (FED) and the double-well FED (DWFED), are developed and optimized in an SOI technology. Trigger circuits are designed to improve the turn-on speed. The advantages of local clamping is highlighted and compared with the rail-based clamping. The results show that the FED is a suitable option for power clamping applications and the DWFED is most suitable for pad-based local clamping. The thesis presents an ESD protection design methodology, which takes advantage of the results and techniques from pervious chapters and put each element into a useful format. Based on the correlation of package level and in-lab test results, a design process based on CDM target definition and device optimization, discharge path analysis, parasitic minimization, I/O data rate estimation and finally ESD and performance characterization is used sequentially to systematically realize the overall design goals.
