The tunable RF capacitor has a better quality factor (Q) than the standard varactor diode. The TCP-3027 is a passive tunable integrated capacitor (PTIC) packaged in a WLCSP measuring 0.87 x 0.71mm.
The tunability is due to the material called ParaScan™ by Paratek. A Barium Strontium Titanate (BST) doped ceramic is used as a dielectric in the capacitor. The ferroelectric characteristics of the ParaScan™ allows a large variation of the electric constant. Paratek has developed a specific capacitor structure and a DC bias compensation to reduce the parasitic acoustic wave.
This reverse costing report provides an estimation of the production cost of the TCP-3027. It describes the overall manufacturing process and highlights key points of innovation developed by Paratek and ON Semiconductor.
