novel integrated circuit topologies using innovative capacitive components on silicon

Published : 14 March 2021

The objective of this thesis is to assess the potentiel of hybrid silicon capacitors developed at LETI as components in novel architectures of integrated energy conversion circuits. The hybrid capacitors exhibit a combination of unique properties in terms of energy density (ionic storage of the order of 40 mJ / mm3) and frequency response (dielectric storage demonstrated up to 30 GHZ), in addition to a technological realization on 200 mm silicon wafers.

Within the framework of this project, it is proposed to design energy conversion circuits (eg. DC-DC converters)exploiting the intrinsic properties of the hybrid capacitors developed at LETI.
