distributed capacitance

(electricity)
Capacitance that exists between the turns in a coil or choke, or between adjacent conductors or circuits, as distinguished from the capacitance concentrated in a capacitor.

Embedding a portion of the distributed capacitance within the substrate for general decoupling results in reductions of both board size and the number of on-board components.
First, we calculate the distributed capacitance C of the line by looking it at as a capacitor.
This additional distributed capacitance loads the via barrels, thereby decreasing the differential impedance and increasing the effective dielectric constant.
The voltage is the signal it is applying and the current is the current it sends into the signal conductor and back to the return conductor, each step of the way, to charge up each successive section of the distributed capacitance of the line.
With this configuration, the distributed capacitance can be accessed by dropping a single via (low inductance) down to the power plane.
