IPDiA launches the first 100nF/0402 Silicon Capacitor for Ultra Broadband Systems

IPDiA launches the first 100nF/0402 Silicon Capacitor for Ultra Broadband Systems

The UBSC capacitor series from IPDiA provide superior ultra-broadband performance and reliability, making them ideal for the requirements of the most stringent ultra-broadband applications (optoelectronics/high-speed data, trans-impedance amplifiers (TIA), receive-and-transmit optical sub-assembly (ROSA/TOSA), synchronous optical networking (SONET), as well as broadband test equipment and broadband microwave/millimeter-wave).

The UBSC capacitors are suitable for DC blocking, feedback, coupling and bypassing applications in all broadband optoelectronics and high speed data systems. The unique Si Cap technology of integrated passive devices in silicon developed by IPDiA, offers unique performances from 16 kHz to 60 GHz:

  • Ultra low insertion loss (0.5 dB);
  • Flat frequency response;
  • Excellent return loss;
  • No phase discontinuity;
  • Lower dielectric absorption (0.1%) compared to NP0/X7R;
  • Excellent stability over temperature (+/-0.5% from -55 to 150°C) and DC voltage (0.1%/V). Capacitance value stable even at 16 kHz;
  • No AC distortion due to low-to zero piezo effect;
  • Excellent reliability exceeding X7R ceramics by a factor 10 (FIT);
  • Reliable and repeatable UBB performances thanks to a fully controlled production line with high temperature curing (above 900°C) generating an highly pure oxide.
