In order to maintain the ESD clamping performance, it is crucial to have silicon processes in place to isolate the pin diodes from the zener area, with an abrupt junction, while leaving enough silicon real estate to maintain the larger zener junction required to achieve good ESD clamping voltage performance and high ESD robustness.
This isolation needs to create an abrupt junction in a very small space in order to maintain a large enough zener junction dimension required to achieve the low ESD clamping voltage seen by the ESD9L5.
