Abstract

Low barrier Schottky clamps have use in devices where the base drive has to be large (Greater Than 0.5 mA) in order to obtain high switching speed. This situation arises commonly in heavily loaded drivers, such as bit and word line drivers, in memories and off-chip drivers in both logic and memory chips.
