On-Chip ESD protection for RF I/Os: Devices, circuits and models

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


ESD protection circuits load RF I/O pads. The negative effect on RF performance can be limited by careful construction and layout of the protection devices. The cancellation technique extends the range of frequencies for which the protection circuit has an acceptably small effect on RF performance.
