This paper reviews new design techniques for electrostatic discharge (ESD) and biomedical integrated circuit (IC) co-designs (ESD-Biomed co-design) for whole-chip design optimization. Challenges for ESD protection design for biomedical electronics are discussed. Promising ESD protection structures for biomedical ICs are described. Example of ESD-protected ultrasound medical imaging system is presented.
