Abstract: International audienceProtection elements are commonly used in electronic systems: digital integrated circuits (ICs) include built-in electrostatic discharge protection devices, and sensitive lines or printed circuit boards traces are often protected using discrete elements, such as clamping or Zener diodes. In order to know if a perturbation is able to disturb or damage ICs, the actual level of signal entering the digital core of the components must be accurately determined, taking into account all the effect…
