Abstract

In this work, circuit-level simulation is conducted for a typical two-stage protection circuit. We demonstrate that the circuit failure mechanism is correctly predicted by simulation. Furthermore, the current protection levels estimated by simulation are in good agreement with the experiments; therefore, circuit-level simulation can be used to predict the HBM-ESD protection level. In addition, the failure site is explained by simulation.
