Latest news reports on the IPDiA-Leti Common Lab results: Leti and IPDiA are proud to unveil a new worldwide record in capacitance density

Grenoble, France | Posted on April 10th, 2012

In less than two years, CEA-Leti and IPDiA are successfully developing a new process based on deposition of atomic medium-K dielectric layers into the aggressive architectures of IPDiA's 3D dimensional metal-insulator-metal capacitors. The atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a key process technology to enable conformal coating of high aspect ratio surfaces and to enable exact thickness control on atomic level. A capacitance density of 550nF/mm2 has been obtained by keeping leakage current and parasitic levels as low as in the 250nF/mm2 PICS3 product.

The "PICS" high-density capacitors are using the third dimension to substantially increase the capacitor surface and thus its capacitance without increasing the capacitor footprint. This technology demonstrates inherent good performance with very high stability (temperature, voltage, ageing), superior reliability and very low parasitic elements (ESR, ESL). It is an excellent alternative to discrete component (MLCC and tantalum capacitors) as it shows better performance in a much smaller volume.

The high performance, stability and reliability, combined with very highcapacitance density provide lots of interest for customers in High Reliability applications such as the medical, harsh environment, automotive, communication, industrial, and defense/aerospace markets. Targeted applications are for instance DC/DC converter and decoupling functions within limited space: IC decoupling, Mems, Sensors, Memory stick, Smartcard.

IPDiA and CEA-Leti are continuing their developments to stabilize the process and to fasten the market deployment; the next step is now to achieve the ambitious 1μF/mm2.

IPDiA unveiled its results at the Device Packaging Conference in Scottdale (USA) last month.
