A technique for reducing cross-talk between dif- ferent circuit sections in an integrated circuit (IQ through the conductive silicon substrate, is described. The technique uses a set of concentric guard rings around the source and sensor of cross-talk in a man- ner that allows reduction of overall die size of the IC.
