Avoiding Latchup

Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 13)


Our explorations have taught us that avoiding latchup means operating solely in SAFE space. We have also found a definition of the switching boundary and the tools for locating the operating point in SAFE space. We now turn to CMOS design and the implementation of these concepts to prevent latchup.
