Vision and Background
MSDLab @ Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (India) & ESD Association (USA) have envisioned a need to strengthen and promote ESD design activities in the south east Asia region through a forum which is now being called “Indian ESD Association”. One of the key outcomes of this forum is India ESD Workshop (InEW), which has following four-fold vision. First, to increase ESD awareness among VLSI / Microelectronics engineers and academicians. Second, to bring VLSI engineers (interested in ESD design and test activities) and ESD experts together. Third, to promote teaching/training, research & development on topics related to on-chip ESD device/circuit or system level ESD design in the south east Asia region. Finally, the most important, to use this as a model to strengthen academia-Industry partnership in this region.
India ESD workshop (InEW), has now become a unique annual effort in India with a vibrant gathering of over 200 engineers and experts from semiconductor industries. It’s executive committee has a presence of all the leading chip design/manufacturing companies while having several world renowned ESD experts in it’s advisory board. The 3rd edition of InEW is a two-day event (Feb 25th – 26th, 2019), which is largely supported by VLSI industry around the world.
