All wireless communication products must meet the reliability specifications during mass production. To prevent from electrostatic discharge (ESD) damages, the ESD protection designs must be added at all input/output pads in chip. Some ESD protection designs with low parasitic capacitance for radio-frequency (RF) applications are reviewed in this paper. Besides, a novel ESD protection design is proposed and realized in a 65nm CMOS process to protect the wideband RF circuits. In this work, diodes are used for ESD protection and inductors are used for high-frequency performance fine tuning. Experimental results of the test circuits have been successfully verified.
