This comprehensive and insightful book discusses ESD protection circuit design problems from an IC designer's perspective. On-Chip ESD Protection for Integrated Circuits: An IC Design Perspective provides both fundamental and advanced materials needed by a circuit designer for designing ESD protection circuits, including:

• Testing models and standards adopted by U.S. Department of Defense, EIA/JEDEC, ESD Association, Automotive Electronics Council, International Electrotechnical Commission, etc.
• ESD failure analysis, protection devices, and protection of sub-circuits
• Whole-chip ESD protection and ESD-to-circuit interactions
• Advanced low-parasitic compact ESD protection structures for RF and mixed-signal IC's
• Mixed-mode ESD simulation-design methodologies for design prediction ESD-to-circuit interactions, and more!
Many real world ESD protection circuit design examples are provided. The book can be used as a reference book for working IC designers and as a textbook for students in the IC design field.

    Its a good book but quite expensive

    A good book to go through especially for I/O designer & those who are into ESD protection design But if you compare the cost it expensive. I am saying this because 150$ means a lot in a country like india. So if possible I would request publishers to release some low cost edition in countries like India.
