coefficient of capacitance

coefficient of capacitance

[¦kō·ə′fish·ənt əv kə′pas·ə·təns]
(electricity)
One of the coefficients which appears in the linear equations giving the charges on a set of conductors in terms of the potentials of the conductors; a coefficient is equal to the ratio of the charge on a given conductor to the potential of the same conductor when the potentials of all the other conductors are 0.

Also, the TCC (temperature coefficient of capacitance) is better than +/-4% from -55[degrees]C to +155[degrees]C, enabling tighter tolerance capacitors for PCB and IC packaging.
Material selection depends on the capacitance density required and the temperature coefficient of capacitance (TCC).
The device has a temperature coefficient of capacitance of [+ or -]15 percent over a temperature range of -55[degrees] to +125[degrees]C and is rated at 10 WVDC.
Q is 200 (min) at 1 MHz and the temperature coefficient of capacitance is NPS [+ or -]500 ppm/[degrees]C.
