Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An ESD protection solution for high voltage input pins consists of a snapback ESD device controlled by a driver circuit that is optimized for performance, small footprint and specific compatibility features. Several control circuits geared towards area minimization are presented, followed by experimental validation of the circuits.
