ESD Simulation Workshop at ESDA Symposium

Workshop A.2 IBIS Models for System Level ESD

Tuesady, September 9, 2014: 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (Parallel Sessions)

Moderator: Fabrice Caignet, LAAS/CNRS
    Panel Members:
  • Robert Myoung, ANSYS
  • Patrice Besse, Freescale
  • Jeff Dunnihoo, Pragma Design
IBIS (Input/Output Buffer Information Specification), also known as ANSI/EIA-656, is a standard behavioral model format used to describe the electrical characteristics of the digital inputs and outputs through V/I and V/T data. This has become more and more popular among semiconductor vendors and system designers because it can be provided without disclosing any proprietary information. This workshop will address the following questions such as: what is the latest development of IBIS models? Is this the right model for system level ESD? How did IBIS models evolve? Is IBIS suitable or unsuitable to provide TLP data characteristics? Can the ESD community influence IBIS development to include ESD specific requirements? What are the ESD data that must be standardized and specified in a ESD-enabled IBIS model? If you have started to develop IBIS models for system level ESD, or are concerned about the direction of the IBIS models used for system ESD, please join us for a lively discussion.
