Electrical Overstress (EOS): Devices, Circuits and Systems by Steven H. Voldman

By Steven H. Voldman

Electrical Overstress (EOS) maintains to affect semiconductor production, semiconductor parts and platforms as applied sciences scale from micro- to nano-electronics.  This bookteaches the basics of electric overstress  and the way to lessen and mitigate EOS disasters. The textual content presents a transparent photograph of EOS phenomena, EOS origins, EOS resources, EOS physics, EOS failure mechanisms, and EOS on-chip and procedure design.  It presents an illuminating perception into the assets of EOS in production, integration of on-chip, and procedure point EOS safety networks, by means of examples in particular applied sciences, circuits, and chips. The e-book is exclusive in overlaying the EOS production concerns from on-chip layout and digital layout automation to factory-level EOS application administration in today’s sleek world.

Look inside of for huge insurance on:

  • Fundamentals of  electric overstress, from EOS physics, EOS time scales, secure working sector (SOA),  to actual types for EOS phenomena
  • EOS assets in today’s semiconductor production atmosphere, and EOS application administration, dealing with and EOS auditing processing to prevent EOS failures
  • EOS disasters in either semiconductor units, circuits and system
  • Discussion of ways to tell apart among EOS occasions, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) occasions (e.g. reminiscent of human physique version (HBM), charged machine version (CDM), cable discharge occasions (CDM), charged board occasions (CBE), to approach point IEC 61000-4-2 attempt events)
  • EOS  defense on-chip layout practices and the way they fluctuate from ESD safeguard networks and solutions
  • Discussion of EOS approach point matters in revealed circuit forums (PCB), and production equipment
  • Examples of EOS concerns in cutting-edge electronic, analog and tool applied sciences together with CMOS, LDMOS, and BCD
  • EOS layout rule checking (DRC), LVS, and ERC digital layout automation (EDA) and the way it really is designated from ESD EDA systems
  • EOS trying out and qualification thoughts, and
  • Practical off-chip ESD defense and process point recommendations to supply extra strong systems

Electrical Overstress (EOS): units, Circuits and Systems is a continuation of the author’s sequence of books on ESD safety. it truly is an important reference and an invaluable perception into the problems that confront smooth expertise as we input the nano-electronic era.

Semiconductor Quantum Optics

Optical communications know-how is growing to be more and more in value, with a quick velocity of improvement. leading edge optical units have emerged from the combination of semiconductor laser diodes with optical waveguide know-how. This well-researched textual content lines the evolution of semiconductor laser amplifiers (SLAs) from those applied sciences.

Advanced Gate Stacks for High-Mobility Semiconductors

Will nanoelectronic units proceed to scale based on Moore’s legislation? At this second, there's no effortless resolution for the reason that gate scaling is speedily rising as a significant roadblock for the evolution of CMOS know-how. Channel engineering in keeping with high-mobility semiconductor fabrics (e. g. strained Si, replacement orientation substrates, Ge or III-V compounds) may possibly support triumph over the stumbling blocks due to the fact that they provide functionality enhancement.

Complex Plasmas: Scientific Challenges and Technological Opportunities

This booklet offers the reader with an advent to the physics of complicated plasmas, a dialogue of the categorical clinical and technical demanding situations they current and an outline in their strength technological functions. advanced plasmas vary from traditional high-temperature plasmas in numerous methods: they might include extra species, together with nano meter- to micrometer-sized debris, detrimental ions, molecules and radicals and so they might convey powerful correlations or quantum results.
