Abstract: Design and implementation of ESD protection for a 5.5 GHz low noise amplifier (LNA) fabricated in a 90 nm RF CMOS technology is presented. An on-chip inductor, added as "plug-and-play", is used as ESD protection for the RF pins. The consequences of design and process, as well as, the limited freedom on the ESD protection implementation for all pins to be protected are presented in detail. Enhancement in the ESD robustness using additional core-clamp diodes is proposed. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
