The challenges for developing an ESD (electrostatic discharge) layout extractor originate from unconventional layout patterns of ESD protection devices, parasitic ESD device extraction and device count reduction. This paper reports a new technology-independent layout extractor, ESDExtractor, which is capable of extracting all types of ESD devices and answers the demands for ESD design verification. A general methodology to extract both intentional and parasitic ESD devices, specific algorithms and implementation methods for efficiency-enhancement are presented, followed by a design example.
