silicon capacitor

silicon capacitor

[′sil·ə·kən kə′pas·əd·ər]
(electronics)
A capacitor in which a pure silicon-crystal slab serves as the dielectric; when the crystal is grown to have a p zone, a depletion zone, and an n zone, the capacitance varies with the externally applied bias voltage, as in a varactor.

One of the MOSCAP-based silicon photonic modulators is a device named silicon insulator silicon capacitor (SISCAP) [10], which is a device that consists of a gate oxide layer, SOI layer of n-type, and poly-Si layer p-type.
subsidiary has agreed to acquire France-based 3D silicon capacitor maker IPDiA, the company said.
Furthermore, IPDiA RFID Silicon capacitor range has been fine tuned in order to reach SRF higher than 1.2 GHz, hence allowing unique fine tuning of the antenna, for 13.56 MHz up to UHF (800/900 MHz) applications.
The unique vertical silicon capacitor technology developed by IPDiA, provides industry-leading performance particularly in terms of capacitor stability over the full operating DC voltage ( -35 dB (from 0.5 to over 10 GHz)
Last but not least, the High Temperature Silicon Capacitor range has been specifically designed to be mounted in high temperature MCMs, with Aluminum pads to be fully compliant with wedge aluminum bonding.
Summary: The silicon capacitors market has remained driven by high demand for high-density capacitor with silicon-based dielectrics across a wide range of industrial applications
Thus, the speed degradation caused by these bulk silicon capacitors is absent in a UTSi MOSFET, making a UTSi MOSFET's speed less supply voltage dependent than its bulk silicon counterpart.
is pleased to welcome IPDiA to the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program, and announce the development of three new S-Parameter (SPAR) models for IPDiA ultra-broadband surface mount silicon capacitors. With a capacitance stability over temperature and voltage lower than [+ or -]0.5% the UBSC capacitor series from IPDiA features excellent performance through 60+GHz in compact standard-size SMT components.
