The goal of this webinar is to introduce to the design community the rich ESD offering provided by TowerJazz. Beyond manufacturing and process technology, TowerJazz offers a variety of support items, particularly for the design of ESD protection.
This webinar provides an overview of the ESD ‘tool-box’ offered by TowerJazz. It covers ESD/LU-related qualification methodology, ESD guidelines to designers, ESD device characterization, and verification tools. Special emphasis is placed on Process Design Kit (PDK) ESD elements such as parameterized cells, design rules, models, and protection schemes required for the safe design of ESD and short time to market. In addition, the implementation of Programmable Electronic Rule Check (PERC) for ESD is described. The latter portion of the webinar will focus on TowerJazz ESD solutions for Power Management platforms.
IC designers interested in learning more about the essential ESD design aids provided by TowerJazz which enable easy and safe design for ESD production and the flexibility required for specific needs
Design background, concepts of ESD protection. This webinar will equip the audience with knowledge of the tools and aids provided by TowerJazz for safe ESD protection design and will provide an overview of the TowerJazz PDK for ESD design.

Dr. Aharoni received the B.Sc. degree in Physics in 1989 and the Ph.D degree in Physics in 1994 from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. His research in the Technion was focused on High Temperature Superconducting devices. In 1993 he joined TowerJazz. Efraim worked in TowerJazz in a variety of fields, in both engineering and management, in development as well as production. Amongst his engineering roles: process, device, yield, director R&D CMOS, and director of reliability.
In the past few years, he has led the ESD and Latch-up activities in the company. This involves the development of new ESD devices and protection concepts, creating libraries of ESD devices in PDK, PERC, and customer support. He works closely with the TowerJazz Design Center, device engineers, PDK group, customers, and production lines, in TowerJazz sites worldwide.
In addition, he is a member of the Electrical Engineering department in the Kinneret College and lectures on a variety of courses.
Mr. Kanawati received his B.Sc in Electrical Engineering from Ben-Gurion University, Israel. He is a device engineer and ESD expert in the Power Management business unit at TowerJazz. In addition, he is positioned now as a TowerJazz design support engineer in Newport Beach, CA, US.
