IPDiA, world leader in 3D silicon passive components, has developed a new range of Low Profile capacitors with Enhanced ESD performance (up to 8 kV) dedicated to industries such as Smart Card, RFID tags and others where integration as well as excellent antenna matching play key roles. This new LPSC range targets antenna matching, RF filtering and decoupling of active dies, in applications with height and volume constraints.
Based on IPDiA technology, this RFID 0402 capacitor range offers low profile (100 µm thin), with very high stability upon applied voltage up to 150 °C, with very low leakage current and high level performance. In order to allow optimization and miniaturization of the overall antenna size, IPDiA is launching a complete range of values from 10 pF up to 330 pF, fully compatible with existing Smart Card and RFID tag manufacturing processes (delivery in T&R or wafers), with same TC as standard RFID ICs and with proven assembly methods such as flip-chip and wirebonding. 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.
