a capacitor cannot be shrunk without new dielectric materials. The same is true for inductors. High voltage devices and power devices have self-defining sizes, dictated by the laws of physics and they scale poorly. The majority of analog applications fall in the technology node of 0.13-micron and above.
LFoundry knows that by using a well-characterized, IP-rich semiconductor technology, high value can be achieved to the silicon by greatly enhancing the analog content while still benefiting from the efficiencies of integrated digital-signal processing.
Other “More than Moore” benefits offered by LFoundry include more efficient use of silicon, as the Analog / Digital interface no longer needs to be taken out via I/O pads. The result is lower noise, better reliability, reduced packaging/test costs and decreased circuit real-estate.
