|Silicon Capacitors with Extremely High Stability and Reliability Ideal for High Temperature Applications|
|Keywords: Silicon Capacitors, High Temperature, High reliability|
|With the wide range of existing capacitors , the customer’s requirements are roughly met but most of the capacitors see their performances largely impacted when they are submitted to high temperature .In this paper we present the Silicon Capacitors highly recommended for applications in the geothermal , downhole drilling , automotive and military .They can operate in a wide operating temperature range and they withstand temperature up to 250°C, with extremely high insulation resistance and very good stability . These capacitors , already extensively used for years in miniaturized equipment and computers ,feature high miniaturization with a large capacitance to volume ratio , thanks to the 3D Silicon technology , extremely stable and reliable even at 100µm thickness . Available in hundreds or thousands of nanofarads , in various sizes and custom configurations ,these capacitors are usable at low frequencies but they are also appropriate for RF applications .The recent progress in the 3D Silicon Capacitor technology , which moves the world wide record from 250nF/mm² up to 550nF/mm² , will give even more room to higher integration. This is an ultra key driver to growth for High reliability applications .|
