Radio frequency (RF) electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection design emerges as a new challenge to RF integrated circuits (IC) design, where the main problem is associated with the complex interactions between the ESD protection network and the core RFIC circuit being protected. This paper reviews recent development in RF ESD protection circuit design, including mis-triggering of RF ESD protection structures, ESD-induced parasitic effects on RFIC performance, RF ESD protection solutions, as well as characterization of RF ESD protection circuits.
