Abstract : With the steady increase of semi-conductor technologies and the explosion of embedded systems into severe environments, failures related to ElectroStatic Discharges (ESD) are growing in importance. ESD are power sources of interferences that can cause the destruction of electronic systems or functionality losses reducing reliability. This is even more critical for aeronautic and automotive applications, where people safety depends on the reliability of embedded electronic products. Studies presented in this document report the last eight years of research activity that I carried out within the group ISGE (Intégration des Systèmes pour la Gestion de l’Energie) then ESE (Energie des Systèmes Embarqués) on the issue of the ESD impact on systems. Facing the complexity of electronic equipment, it is difficult to predict the causes of failures whether hardware or functional. Thank to a systemic approach we present how to predict the ESD impacts through simulation. The proposed methodology is based on the development of dedicated measurement methods and purely behavioral models. The approach gives the opportunity for system level co-design that can be used either by IC founders or equipment manufacturers.
