Abstract

This paper discusses two issues concerning the accuracy or electrical characterizations of Interconnect transmission lines, particularly in regard to a recently published paper. The error in the characteristic impedance may be reduced through an alternative approximation to the capacitance of the transmission line. Furthermore, measurements or both the propagation constant and characteristic impedance, which are the two primary parameters characterizing the line, may be Improved by the use or a well-conditioned algorithm.
