Impulse Semiconductor Inc
Impulse Semiconductor has over 20 years of specific IC processing and product design experience for electrostatic discharge (ESD), electrical overstress (EOS), latchup, hot carrier immunity. Impulse Semiconductor manufacturing and design acumen will give your design that extra value-added ESD edge whether your IC is high speed digital, analog, RF, or a mixed signal application. Located in Silicon Valley, our customer service is world class too, just like our customer base. With Impulse Semiconductor, the ease of pro-actively designing ESD robustness into your IC product is far less costly (and taxing) than doing ESD engineering in house.
The Impulse TSMC .13u ESD diode was made to provide ESD discharge paths when integrating third party IP in an integrated circuit design for total ESD protection. The Impulse ESD diode has been successfully used with Dolphin Technologies, Artisan/ARM, TriCN/Synopsis I/O libraries, as well as popular IP blocks from RAMBUS, Chip Idea and other quality IP vendors. A 5.5 volt reverse bias anode to cathode operational specification enables the Impulse TSMC .13u ESD diode to be the device of choice for 5 volt tolerant designs.
The Impulse Semiconductor High Current Transmission Line Pulse (TLP) test system is the tool of choice for extracting ESD parameters for transient protection devices in a package, or at wafer level. With accuracy better than 100 milliohms at 40 amps peak current, the Impulse high current TLP is
specially tailored to the needs of today’s ESD device designers who must accurately measure low values dynamic resistance irrespective of breakdown voltage.
The Impulse transmission line pulser (TLP) discharge networks are easily
integrated with other instruments for a custom system matched for your device
and process applications. Specifications include 1-10 nanosecond rise times,
up to 40 amps peak, for 10-500 nanosecond pulse widths. It is a proven design
incorporating 15 years of hardware and device development experience.
Reliable performance over hundreds of processes, and thousands of products.
All TLP systems are built by special request, contact us with your specifications
