ST was the first to propose IPAD™ integrated devices, which combine resistors, capacitors, inductors, ESD diodes and multiple other functions in a single, tiny package, to provide highly integrated solutions for the converging market.
ST’s portfolio of IPAD, IPD and tunable devices integrates many components and functions such as:
- ESD protection
- EMI low-pass filtering
- Line terminations
- Common-mode filtering
- Pull-up or pull-down resistances
- High-value capacitances
- Integrated RF passive devices with wide-band couplers, high- or low-band filters, baluns, diplexers
- LTE band tuning, with high-quality factor RF tunable capacitors
ST’s IPAD, IPD, and highly-integrated antenna tuners are intended for applications such as mobile phones, computers, tablets, set-top boxes, automotive entertainment, portable medical equipment and smart metering.
When high performance is needed in a small form factor, ST’s IPAD and IPD technology provides the ideal solution in terms of space and cost savings.
ST can support both standard catalog parts and the development of dedicated customized devices.
