impedance drop

impedance drop

[im′pēd·əns ‚dräp]
(electricity)
The total voltage drop across a component or conductor of an alternating-current circuit, equal to the phasor sum of the resistance drop and the reactance drop.

It contains settable constraints for the catheter status according to user preference, including maximal range of catheter drift, minimal time of catheter-tissue connection, and force over time (FOT) which means percentage of minimal time with CF consistently above certain number of grams, impedance drop, and target temperature.
The filters, impedance drop and target temperature, were not ticked because these two filters were not well predicted according to the suggestion by Johnson & Johnson.
A crowbar device begins conducting when the voltage across it exceeds a rated level, at which point the device impedance drops rapidly along with the voltage across it.
When it is within half a line width away, the impedance drops by 1 [OMEGA], and then drops faster as the ground trace gets closer.
(The input impedance of the mixer is roughly proportional to [Beta] [R.sub.E], and since [Beta] decreases almost linearly with increasing frequency, the input impedance drops with frequency.
Here, the impedance drops by about 1.5 [ohm] in going from 0.5 oz.
In the tightest coupled differential microstrip, with a spacing equal to the line width, the differential impedance drops only about 10% from the differential impedance when the traces are far apart with no coupling.
