  • The influence of discharge voltage on ESD parameters for air discharge

    In this paper, a new ESD testing system was designed and the influence of discharge voltage on ESD parameters, e.g. peak value of discharge current, rise time and peak to peak value of induced voltage in a semi-circular loop antenna, and also the reproducibility of experimental results were analyzed used the system. It was concluded that as the approaching speed was constant, the variations of ESD parameters with discharge voltage were divided into three regions: 'Townsend region' 'Transition region' and 'Streamer region' the field strength generated at low discharge voltage was stronger than that at high discharge voltage, better reproducibility could be also obtained at low discharge voltage.

  • Electromagnetic field generated by transient electrostatic discharges (ESD) from person charged with low electrostatic voltage

    Tests were carried out by real charged human body discharging to the ground. The results show that the peak-to-peak electric field radiated in the distance of several centimeters is in the range of 10<sup>2</sup>-10<sup>3</sup> V/m and the magnetic field strength can be in the range of 10-10<sup>2</sup> A/m in the distance of 10 cm from the discharge. The spectrum of the field is extremely wide. The experiments also show that the amplitude of electric field radiated by ESD when human holding a metal tool discharging to the ground is about many times larger than that of the human finger discharging directly to the ground. Electrostatic discharge is one of the most common harmful electromagnetic sources to the electronic equipment in many environments. Tests also show that the captured waveform may be ringing which is stimulated by the fast rise ESD due to capacitance and inductance including any parasitic LC parameter of the probe and cable.

    This paper describes experimental and numerical results of Electromagnetic (EM) pulses caused by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) in the IEC802.2 standard set-up. Results obtained by combined Spice-TLM model of the ESD event were compared with E and H field measured by a small optically linked field sensor. They enable the distribution of the EM field above the conductive table to be determined.

  • Robust Protection Device for Electrostatic Discharge/Electromagnetic Interference in Industrial Interface Applications

    A new silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) fabricated in a 30-V mixed-signal CDMOS (CMOS/DMOS) technology is presented. This device allows for robust electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) voltage clamp for high-speed industrial interface applications operating in variable voltage swing range (e.g., from -7 to +12 V). The device robustness is demonstrated under different pulsewidths, stress, and temperature. Analysis of the device physics is complemented via mixed-mode numerical simulations. The $\text{200} \times \text{200}\ \mu\textrm{m}^{2}$ device designed in an annular configuration achieves > ±8 kV IEC robustness and low clamping voltage at ± 20 A.

  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) effects on wireless power transfer using magnetic resonance coupling

    In this paper, we present the analysis of electrostatic discharge (ESD) effects in wireless power transfer (WPT) using magnetic resonance coupling. For analyzing ESD effects, we use the simple equivalent circuit model which consists of self-inductance, mutual inductance, parasitic resistance, and capacitance. The ESD pulse is generated by the model of an ESD generator. The generated ESD pulse is injected to the source coil and the transferred ESD pulse is obtained in the time-domain. In addition, the transferred ESD pulse is analyzed in the frequency-domain. We compare the resonant frequency of the WPT system with the frequency of the transferred ESD pulse, and analyze the relationship between the two frequencies.

  • Electrostatic discharge: a review

    The advent of practical problems associated with electrostatic discharge (ESD) has reawakened a wider interest in static electricity and again brought it to the fore. One of the main practical problems has been as a consequence of electronic circuits getting smaller, since it takes less energy to destroy them. While this paper mainly addresses ESD with respect to electronics, it must not be forgotten that ESD can affect most modern production facilities in one way or another. It can attract dust to surfaces that must be kept clean. It can also be a source of discomfort to personnel and more importantly it can create a fire hazard in combustible environments.<<ETX>>

  • Electrothermal Characterization of Multilevel Cu-Graphene Heterogeneous Interconnects in the Presence of an Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

    Temperature responses of multilevel Cu-graphene heterogeneous interconnects under the impact of an electrostatic discharge are investigated by using our self-developed time-domain finite-element method algorithm. Corresponding to the advanced CMOS processes, all parameters of such multilevel interconnects are assessed by the ITRS. It is numerically shown that when capped with 10-nm- thick multilayer graphene, the maximum temperature of the Cu-graphene interconnect could be suppressed by 45% and 30% for 13.4- and 21-nm nodes, respectively. This study could be useful for improving the reliability of interconnects in the future nanoscale integrated circuits.
