Certus offers additional ESD & IP services through our professional affiliates:

  • Not every company has the I/O and ESD expertise to meet individualized requirements across a broad range of customers.¬† Certus and our partners have developed proprietary solutions to satisfy unique and often challenging client ESD needs in a timely yet affordable manner.
  • Our ESD expertise features:
    • Specialized low-capacitance radio-frequency and high-speed digital and analog solutions.
    • Footprints up to 20% smaller than foundry-sourced options.
    • High-voltage ESD solutions capable of 10V, 15V and even 20V using baseline CMOS technologies, enabling co-integration with conventional CMOS designs and keeping processing costs to a minimum.
    • HBM robustness exceeding 4KV and CDM up to 800V for most applications, including high-speed interfaces.
    • Custom solutions to address specialized ESD requirements beyond conventional standards.
  • Our ESD knowledge is not only built into our I/O & IP solutions, it is also offered as a separate service. From architectural reviews and design debug to IP co-design, Certus and our trusted partners are available to support all your ESD & foundation IP needs.
