Abstract

See full text

An enhanced ESD clamp is provided with a resistor connected between the body terminal and the source terminal of a MOSFET device. In one exemplary embodiment, the MOSFET device is a grounded-gate NMOS (ggNMOS) transistor device with the resistor (“body resistor”) connected externally to the MOSFET device. In another embodiment, the MOSFET device is a ggPMOS transistor device. In yet another embodiment, the body resistor is disposed within and connected internally to the MOSFET device. In any event, the resistance value of the body resistor determines the level to which the trigger voltage of the ESD clamp will be reduced when an ESD event occurs.
