A novel and compact device with adjustable forward and reverse conductions and symmetrical/asymmetrical I-V characteristics for ESD (electrostatic discharge) applications is presented. The device allows for the dual-polarity conduction with the proper selection of blocking junction configurations. This design enables high-level ESD protections for various mixed-signal integrated circuits operating under a wide range of symmetrical and asymmetrical bias conditions.
