The very fast transients of micro-gap discharges driven by low voltage electrostatic discharging (ESDs) are investigated in the time domain. We previously developed a 12 GHz wideband measurement setup consisting of a distributed constant line system, however the observed transients due to micro-gap discharges had very fast rise times of 34 ps or less, which reached the limitation on our system. In this paper, we proposed a method for estimating wideband transients beyond the measurement limit by using the transmission loss of a high performance coaxial transmission line. The proposed method is validated by estimating an impulsive voltage waveform with rise/fall time of 16 ps from the waveform measured through a semi-rigid coaxial cable with a length of 10 m.
