What Can GTLeader Provide for ESD Design

More aggressive processes, rules and designs cause ESD failure mechanisms that were not observed previously.

I/O ESD protection by foundry and I/O library vendors usually over-protects I/O, and allows core circuit failure.

There is no one ESD protection scheme or device that can protect all circuit from ESD damage (no one-size-fits-all remedy !!).
