Despite the fact that the world is going digital, many ICs still have analog I/O's - in fact analog design has never been more relevant. At Sofics, we are ready to help you designing your analog pads,
to enable any signal. Many of these are high frequency/high speed. The capacitance loading at the pad must be minimized.
With the progressing of technology, the transistors are becoming more prone to ESD damage. A spike of a few volts suffices to damage gate oxides, or drain-source junctions. This makes ESD protection more difficult, and
the demand for low capacitance all the more a challenge. Sofics has helped many customers finding an optimum between ESD protection, and enabling high speed through low capacitance ESD solutions. Some examples are given below.
