Proton bombardment technology is integrated into standard IC process as a post-backend process module to form local semi-insulating regions on mixed-signal/RF chips. With 10 15 -cm -2 , 100-μm deep bombardment through mask windows, ρ S =20k-∼50k Ω.cm regions are formed, which are thermally stable at 200C. High-Q inductors and reliable MOSFETs are made on same chip with no need of tuning the existing wafer process. Design rules are established.
