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.


Indian ESD Association’s Executive Committee:


  1. Ramakrishnan Subramanian (Western Digital)
  2. Subramanian Vaidyanathan (Texas Instruments)
  3. Ajay Kumar Vaidhyanathan (Intel Corp.)
  4. Jagadeesha Mallaiah (Cadence)
  5. Mayank Shrivastava (Indian Institute of Science Bangalore)


India ESD workshop (InEW), has now become a unique 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 events are largely supported by VLSI industry around the world.
