Abstract

See full text

The disclosed method and device relates to a bidirectional ESD power clamp, comprising a semiconductor structure (BigNFET; BigPFET) having a conductive path connected between first and second nodes and having a triggering node via which the conductive path can be triggered. An ESD transient detection circuit is connected between the first and second nodes and to the triggering node and comprises a first part for detecting an occurrence of a first ESD transient on the first node. The semiconductor structure is provided on an insulator substrate, such that a parasitic conductive path between said first and second nodes via the substrate is avoided. The ESD transient detection circuit further comprises a second part for detecting an occurrence of a second ESD transient on the second node.
