Patent application, 2007

A method of creating a capacitor in an integrated circuit. According to a basic version of the invention the capacitor uses intensive fringing fields to create a capacitance. This is achieved by creating a capacitor with vertical overlapping conducting electrodes between two planes of the integrated circuit, instead of plates parallel to the planes. A capacitor according to the invention can additionally comprise horizontal, i.e. parallel plates. A capacitor according the method is also disclosed
