Fixing the ESD generator

Posted on zo 01 november 2020 in NLNet

This is a continuation on my previous blog on first tests on the ESD generator.


After some more debugging the voltage multiplier of the ESD Generator has been made to work. Detailed simulation results of the problems can be found in this Jupyter notebook in the created sim folder …

First testing of and changes to ESD generator

Posted on zo 04 oktober 2020 in NLNet

As reported in a previous blog post I am working on a small circuit to generate high voltages for some ESD testing. I now received the PCBs and the components for on the PCB and even did find some time to do the first testing of the design. As a …

ESD Generator: high voltage generator for ESD testing

Posted on zo 12 juli 2020 in NLNet

After tape-out of NLNet018TV I am now working on implementing the test procedures and gathering the equipment needed for executing the tests.

For ESD testing high voltages with limited charges need to be generated. This high voltage charge is then applied over two pins on the test chip to see …
