Abstract

Two supply noise monitor circuits are demonstrated on a 130-nm test chip. These monitors are capable of providing quantitative measurements of on-chip supply voltage perturbations resulting from system-level ESD. Circuit-level simulations reproduce all trends found in the measurement results.
