Transmission Line Capacitance Measurement

Abstract

The capacitance of coplanar lines is measured with two new techniques, one utilizing the resistance of the line and the other that of a resistor embedded in the line. The results of both measurements agree closely with calculations. A technique for directly comparing the capacitance of two similar transmission lines is also demonstrated. The relevance of these measurements to the determination of characteristic impedance is discussed.
