Electrostatic discharge (ESD) continues to impact semiconductor manufacturing, semiconductor components and systems, as techlogies scale from micro- to na electronics. This book introduces the fundamentals of ESD, electrical overstress (EOS), electromagnetic interference (EMI), electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and latchup, as well as provides a coherent overview of the semiconductor manufacturing environment and the final system assembly. It provides an illuminating look into the integration of ESD protection networks followed by examples in specific techlogies, circuits, and chips. The text is unique in covering semiconductor chip manufacturing issues, ESD semiconductor chip design, and system problems confronted today as well as the future of ESD phemena and na-techlogy. Look inside for extensive coverage on: * The fundamentals of electrostatics, triboelectric charging, and how they relate to present day manufacturing environments of micro-electronics to na-techlogy * Semiconductor manufacturing handling and auditing processing to avoid ESD failures * ESD, EOS, EMI, EMC, and latchup semiconductor component and system level testing to demonstrate product resilience from human body model (HBM), transmission line pulse (TLP), charged device model (CDM), human metal model (HMM), cable discharge events (CDE), to system level IEC 61000-4-2 tests * ESD on-chip design and process manufacturing practices and solutions to improve ESD semiconductor chip solutions, also practical off-chip ESD protection and system level solutions to provide more robust systems * System level concerns in servers, laptops, disk drives, cell phones, digital cameras, hand held devices, automobiles, and space applications * Examples of ESD design for state-of-the-art techlogies, including CMOS, BiCMOS, SOI, bipolar techlogy, high voltage CMOS (HVCMOS), RF CMOS, smart power, magnetic recording techlogy, micro-machines (MEMs) to na-structures ESD Basics: From Semiconductor Manufacturing to Product Use complements the author s series of books on ESD protection. For those new to the field, it is an essential reference and a useful insight into the issues that confront modern techlogy as we enter the Na-electronic Era.
