There is significant, and growing, interest in ESD phenenomena in advanced integrated devices and systems as a result of their increasing use within sub-micron scale, high circuit density technologies. This volume is designed as the first in a series of three books addressing Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) physics, devices, circuits and design across the full range of integrated circuit technologies. ESD Physics and Devices provides a concise treatment of the ESD phenomenon and the physics of devices operating under ESD conditions. Voldman presents an accessible introduction to the field for engineers and researchers requiring a solid grounding in this important area.
