Understand the co-design of analog/mixed signal circuits and ESD protection

ESD An Analog Design Viewpoint


A quick review of IC design and semiconductor components would be helpful.


The objective of this course is to understand how to efficiently and accurately apply ESD protection from an analog/mixed signal IC designers viewpoint. The approach will be to understand ESD protection cells, understand ESD influence on circuit components, apply a co-design approach to combining ESD protection with analog/mixed signal circuits, understand the physical aspects of ICs on ESD, and to avoid common mistakes in ESD protection.
The terminology used in this course is that found in analog and mixed-signal IC design practice. An understanding of integrated circuit components; transistors, resistors, capacitors, etc., is assumed.
The course consist of 16 lectures with a quiz following each lecture. The course will take approximately 10 hours to complete including the quizzes.
This course should be taken by analog and/or mixed signal designers who want to be able to efficiently and effectively provide ESD protection for their designs.If the student has completed the course and is interested in a copy of the notes, they can be downloaded from Dropbox.
