Abstract

A dual time constant rail clamp is introduced. A relatively small time constant is dynamically adjusted, after the clamp is triggered during the electrostatic discharge (ESD) event, to hold the clamp ON and dissipate the full ESD event. ESD and performance results for the new clamp are presented.
