Low Inductance Capacitors For Digital Circuits
Written By: John Galvagni
Abstract: DOWNLOAD TECHNICAL PAPER
Ceramic capacitors have become one of the limiting factors in digital circuits because of intrinsic characteristics such as equivalent series resistance and inductance. There are many things which could be done to mitigate that, and we describe some of those in this paper. AVX’s DCAP capacitor, (developed with and for IBM) is used as a benchmark to show how much can be done to improve the situation. We compare and contrast that part to those currently available.
