DLI has made a name for themselves through manufacturing high Q, high frequency single layer capacitors that feature gold metallization for wire bonding, thin film technology, and rugged construction. They’re ideal for high frequency applications such as DC blocking, tuning, RF bypass, and filtering.
API Technologies has the ability to deposit NiChrome and TaN (tantalum nitride) resistors on all popular substrates with almost all conductor metals, barrier metals, and base metals. These resistors feature tolerances to + 2.5µm, metalized vias and wraparounds, dielectric bridges, Gold/Tin selective deposition, and more. Both passivated TaN and NiChrome Resistors are available in top-contact and back-contact versions, and are available in several resistances and tolerances.
Antenna tuning and antenna diversity are key for smartphone manufacturers looking for analog semiconductor solutions that can handle more than 20 cellular frequency bands, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth®.
