We have developed and characterized new (ESD) concepts with several benefits like lower parasitic capacitance (>30%), lower leakage (orders of magnitude), tolerance to higher voltages (5V analog pads in 1.8V CMOS technology), higher ESD protection (2x, 4x) in the same silicon area, …
Protecting chip interfaces in FinFET nodes against Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) needs dedicated attention. Sofics has verified its ESD protection clamps on several FinFET technologies. Proven technology, broad solution spectrum, beyond standard performance boosts your competitive advantage
Semiconductor devices used in Internet of Things (IoT) applications require special attention to ensure they are protected against Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) events. Most IoT chips need low-leakage solutions. Several have unique IO requirements. Many devices end up in harsh environments.
Wired, wireless and optical communication
Most of the high-bandwidth interfaces cannot be protected with the conventional ESD solutions. They need low-parasitic capacitance, extra care for sensitive transistors and typically operate at a voltage below the IO voltage. Check out Sofics technology, used in 30+ projects.
Automotive electronics used in safety critical like applications have severe ESD/EOS and EMC requirements. Another type of automotive electronics is used for ADAS, infotainment. These are manufactured in advanced CMOS or FinFET technology that is easily damaged during ESD stress.
Semiconductor companies developing medical products frequently need non-standard I/Os and ESD protection. Think about pace makers, implanted hearing aids, sensors on patches. Semiconductors are used in new locations, are hard to replace and need low-power circuits
Radiation hard electronics
Semiconductor devices that are used at high elevation (airplanes, drones) or in space need special attention for every circuit but certainly the I/Os and ESD protection cells due to enhanced radiation. This is also relevant for semiconductor devices used in nuclear particle research (Cern) or nuclear facilities.
