Maybe a stupid question.
What is normally we see on the package of PIII or Athlon processors?
Are the 0603(or other sizes) parts also on-chip capacitors or could we term
the subject under this thread 'on-die capacitor'?
My next question is what is the main (dis)advantage of these on-package
parts? I think it is easy for them to reach the capacity as ones mounted on
the PCB, say, 100pF - 1uF, but they are certainly less efficient than those
embedded in the die, am I right?
My last question is what special technique is needed to mount these parts
on the chip?
Thanks in advance for any comments.
