Custom Model Silicon Chip Capacitors MIS MOS MNOS USMC2416-330 - Series of chip capacitors are designed to be used as RF bypass, DC blocks coupling filter elements and microwave circuit resonant elements. When used as resonant elements in oscillators, Q has to be as high as possible while the temperature coefficient has to be as small as possible. U. S. MICROWAVES advanced semiconductor and thin film technologies allow for an important reduction of the series resistance DCR that is increasing the SRF of the capacitor. High quality dielectrics with low loss factors translate into an increased Q. The microwave capacitors are manufactured on high conductivity silicon substrates. The dielectrics are SiO2 and Si3N4 and the capacitors are available with single or dual dielectric. The die thickness is 0.005 +/- 0.001. The top plate of the capacitors is 99.99% electroplated or sputtered gold with a TiW barrier that withstands half hour at 400 deg. C without loss of adhesion. Minimum 1.5 micrometers of Au enhance the top plate bond ability. The backside of the die is metalized with Ti/Pt/Au, which is compatible with most die attaching methods. The MNOS type of capacitors has low voltage coefficients, low TCC, high Q and high dielectric breakdown. Capacitors are 100% visually inspected and packaged in waffle packs, gel packs or vials.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND SHORT APPLICATION NOTE
USMC2416-33pF Series of MIS chip capacitors are designed to be used in chip and wire hybrid circuits as RF bypass, DC blocks coupling filter elements and microwave circuit resonant elements. When used as resonant elements in oscillators, Q has to be as high as possible while the temperature coefficient has to be as small as possible.
US MICROWAVES advanced semiconductor and thin film technologies allow for an important reduction of series resistance DCR, increased SRF, low insertion loss and skin effect at higher microwave frequencies. High quality dielectrics with low loss factors translate into an increased Q, very high insulation resistance, high breakdown voltage, long term stability under bias at high temperatures. US Microwaves MIS chip capacitors exhibit Q values in excess of 3000 in X band, insertion loss less than 0.08dB through Ku band and series resistance much lower than conventional ceramic chip capacitors. DCR of less than 0.1 ohms is typical for most chip sizes. MIS capacitors with silicon nitride/silicon oxide dielectric, also known as MNOS capacitors exhibit high stability, low temperature coefficients, low leakage in nA range and high BV from 25, 50 and 100 to 300V. MIS Chip capacitors are available in a wide range of die sizes, capacitance values and breakdown voltages.
