Passive Components (II)



With an understanding of the basic passive components provided by previous chapters, we can now study the more complex passive components. They are often formed from the basic passive components. Those complex passive components are sometimes composed of several simple components, but can also be fabricated using monolithic integration methods. Multiple schemes can also be used to fabricate each type of those components to achieve a similar function. Once again, we will highlight the principles applied and basic components used to form the complex components as well as how the functions are achieved as we go through this chapter.
