Maximizing ESD design window by optimizing gate bias for cascoded drivers in 45nm and beyond SOI technologies
In advanced SOI technologies, the bottom gate voltage plays an important role in achieving the maximum trigger voltage Vt1 of the cascoded drivers. A comparable MOSFET and BJT current handling is needed to ensure maximum Vt1. The minimum and maximum Vt1 window for cascoded driver is shown to range between a single FET Vt1 and twice single FET Vt1.
