We propose a novel methodology for modeling an electrostatic discharge (ESD) generator based on a deep neural network (DNN). The proposed methodology can predict an equivalent circuit model for several commercial ESD generators within a few second. For this, the DNN model based on multi-layer perceptron is trained with several different ESD waveforms. Consequently, we evaluate the proposed DNN model using various ESD waveforms, and the resulting correlation coefficient is about 0.9 for more than 95 % test samples. With our methodology, the predicted equivalent ESD circuit models have higher accuracy than the conventional approaches based on engineer's empirical knowledge.
