The choice of packaging technology is determined by diverse factors such as electrical performance, reliability, cost and package size. Embedded components are one of the solutions for increased system miniaturization. Their feasibility depends both on the electrical performance as weil as on fabrication tolerance of the technology. This contribution focuses on the impact of fabrication tolerance on the electrical characteristics of embedded filters and compares different technologies.
