In 2019, the silicon-based integrated passive devices market dominated over 75% revenue share and is projected to witness growth of around 9% through 2026. Silicon-based IPDs offer high insulation, small thermal coefficient, and improved device performance. The performance of IPD can be further improved with the integration of thick metal and dielectric layer to achieve high capacitance density in comparison with typical IC technology. The silicon-based integrated passive devices can be grinded to 100 micrometer thickness through several packaging options such as wire bonding, micro bumping, and copper pads.
The integrated passive devices market players are adopting several new techniques with silicon materials to enhance the IPDs performance. For example, the integration of 3D passive components into silicon helps integrated passive device manufacturers to deliver high density capacitor, Zener diode, and high-Q inductor in a single silicon die. The designing time of integrated passive devices on silicon depends upon the complexity of circuit, which can be reduced by using application-specific design tools and circuits.
