Parasitic capacitance results from unwanted stray capacitance that exists between the parts of an electronic component or circuit due to their proximity to each other.
For simplification reasons only the global stray inductance and the global stray capacitance were taken into consideration.
In this configuration, the total capacitance of the probe is dependent on the stray capacitance [C.
Thin-film processing permits edge coupling of the inductors, which creates less stray capacitance than broadside coupled inductors.
Twin lead antenna cable minimizes stray capacitance in the connections to the electrodes.
A separate shield electrode can be used to reduce stray capacitance, providing more reliable operation in the presence of a water film or droplets.
The capacitance of the feedback element should be at least 10 pF to avoid errors due to stray capacitance and noise gain.
This can be beneficial to adjust for the ambient temperature or to compensate for the effects of stray capacitance on the board.
The test head design also reduces stray capacitance and measurement settling time to maintain high throughput.
Key integrated features of Pureline systems include the MicroChamber(R) shielded wafer enclosure for reduced EMI and RFI interference, AttoGuard(R) active guard for reduced stray capacitance and noise reduction, low-noise triaxial thermal chucks for suppressed noise injection, and low impedance grounds for improved bypass of broadband transmissions.
Murata's advanced multilayer technology allows for a high level of insertion loss while minimizing stray capacitance of the inductor element realizing higher performance in the GHz range.
