A passive element circuit is formed by a spiral inductor, a high-dielectric-constant thin-film capacitor, a via hole, and a bonding pad. By using SrTiO.sub.3 as the high-dielectric-constant thin-film, which exhibits a dielectric constant of 200 up to a frequency of 20 GHz, it is possible to achieve a reduction of the capacitor surface area to approximately 1/30 of the area formerly required when using a SiN.sub.x (dielectric constant up to 6.5). Two high-dielectric-constant thin-film capacitors, a via hole for grounding, and a bonding pad are disposed at the center, which are surrounded by the spiral inductor. To connect the two high-dielectric-constant thin-film capacitors are joined in series, they are formed on one high-dielectric-constant thin-film. A lead from the spiral inductor is made by a metal wire from the bonding pad at the center.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
