World’s smallest and thinnest wire-


bondable silicon capacitors
May 19th, 2008 • Related • Filed Under

OnChip Devices, a world leader in Integrated Passive


Devices (IPD), has introduced a wire-bondable miniature silicon chip capacitor targeted for
RF Microwave, Multichip Module and Hybrid Microelectronics applications. OnChip’s
SiC0101 device is built on silicon with a single wire-bondable pad on the top and
metallization on the backside of the chip suitable for epoxy die attach. A layer of Silicon
Nitride dielectric film is sandwiched between these two metal plates to form the capacitor.
OnChip’s high quality dielectric is deposited using proprietary processes to achieve
capacitance values of 4.7pF to 22pF. This dielectric material offers high stability and Q
values while exhibiting low temperature and voltage coefficients and extremely stable
capacitance over a wide range of frequencies from 1MHz to several GHz. Additionally, their
semiconductor construction provides an ultra-high Self-Resonant Frequency (SRF) and
exceptionally low Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR).

Intended to save space while providing superior electrical performance, OnChip’s SiC0101
single-wire capacitor is only 250um x 250um (10mils x 10mils or 0.25mm x 0.25mm) in
size and is available as thin as 100um (4mils or 0.1mm). Other thicknesses (6mils and 8mils)
are also available in this foot print. The wire bondable top pad consists of either Aluminum
or Gold metallization. Back metal is typically Gold. Compared to conventional RF
capacitors, OnChip’s SiC0101 offers extremely stable capacitance over a wide range of
frequencies from 1MHz to several GHz. Additionally, their semiconductor construction
provides an ultra-high Self-Resonant Frequency (SRF) and exceptionally low Equivalent
Series Resistance (ESR).

This thin film top to bottom contact MNOS capacitors provide an extremely stable and
precise component for a variety of hybrid microelectronic and multichip module
applications. Other applications include voltage-controlled oscillators, filter networks,
matching networks in modules for wireless communications including mobile phones,
cordless phones, and global positioning systems. Typical applications for the SiC0101
capacitor include voltage-controlled oscillators, filter networks, matching networks in
modules for wireless communications including mobile phones, cordless phones, and global
positioning systems.
