SOFICS Video Material

Video material about ESD protection

Because it is difficult to meet our customers in-person, Sofics is using short video messages to introduce new solutions, to provide inspiration and to improve understanding about on-chip ESD protection.

Tutorial series

Short (typical less than 5 minutes) tutorials about different ESD related topics. Snackable content – learn something in few minutes.

1: Diode triggered SCR for ESD protectionLink
2: ESD characterization using Transmission Line Pulse testerLink
3. VF-TLP characterization to estimate CDM robustnessLink
4. Local ESD Protection for Analog IOsLink

Sofics has ESD solutions for every application

Very short video’s (duration of about 1 minute) about different applications, process options or test conditions.
