A novel ESD protection circuit, which first combines the advantages of complementary low-voltage-trigger SCR devices and the gate-couple technique, is proposed to more effectively protect the thinner gate oxide of deep submicron CMOS IC's without adding extra ESD-implant mask. Experimental results have verified its excellent ESD-protection capability.
