Capacitor-couple ESD protection circuit for deep-submicron low-voltage CMOS ASIC

FREE-DOWNLOADMD Ker, CY Wu, T Cheng… – Very Large Scale …,

Capacitor-couple technique used to lower snapback- trigger voltage and to ensure uniform
ESD current distribution in deep-submicron CMOS on-chip ESD protection circuit is
proposed. The coupling capacitor is realized by a poly layer right under the wire-bonding
