Paratek - BST Tunable RF Capacitor - ON Semiconductor TCP-3027 Reverse Costing Analysis

Dublin, Dec. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Paratek - BST Tunable RF Capacitor - ON Semiconductor TCP-3027 Reverse Costing Analysis" report to their offering.

Manufactured and sold by ON Semiconductor and based on a Paratek technology the TCP-3027 is a tunable RF capacitor of 2.7pF.

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.
