IPAD™ technology integrates passive components such as resistors, inductors, capacitors, and active functions such as ESD protection. The IPAD product family provides both better EMI performance and BOM savings compared with discrete circuits. In order to cover a larger range of capacitor values, ST has developed a high-capacitance density technology to reach the nanofarad scale. These capacitors can be used for decoupling, DC blocking and low-frequency filtering in audio and analog applications. Several hundred million products made from this technology have been shipped already.
