A self-matched ESD cell library has been implemented in a commercial sub-100nm CMOS process for 60-GHz broadband RF applications. This ESD cell library has reached the 50-Ω input/output matching to reduce the design complexity for RF circuit designer and to provide suitable electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection. Experimental results of this ESD(More)
Nanoscale CMOS technologies, which were sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD), have been widely used to implement radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits. Against ESD damages, ESD protection design must be included in RF circuits. A novel modified LC-tank ESD protection design was presented in this work. Such ESD protection circuit had been designed(More)
Nanoscale CMOS technologies have been widely used to implement radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits. However, the thinner gate oxide and silicided drain/source in nanoscale CMOS technologies seriously degrade the electrostatic discharge (ESD) robustness of RF circuits. Against ESD damage, on-chip ESD protection design must be included in RF circuits. As(More)
To protect radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits from electrostatic discharge (ESD) damages, silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) devices have been used as main on-chip ESD protection devices due to their high ESD robustness and low parasitic capacitance in nanoscale CMOS technologies. In this work, the SCR device assisted with an inductor to resonate at(More)
