This paper presents four novel interconnect based capacitors with 2 to 3 times the capacitance density of a conventional metal sandwich capacitor and with self-resonant frequencies above 20 GHz, suitable for low power RF applications. Unlike the conventional capacitor, the capacitance density of these structures increases with the scaling of the technology.(More)
strapping technique is presented that relaxes the restriction due to hot carrier degradation in power amplifiers and alleviates the need to use thick-oxide transistors that have poor RF performance compared with the standard transistors available in the same process. The power amplifier shows no performance degradation after ten days of continuous operation(More)
