Examples

  • At turn on, these things feed huge capacitances as well, since the clocks and digital logic need really clean DC voltages with minimal ringing and noise.

  • Equivalent connection diagram of the capacitances of - a three-phase overhead line, CL conductor-conductor capacitance, CE conductor-earth capacitance

    4. Power transmission and distribution in power supply systems

  • I went quickly to the controls and overrode the order about altitude-I was afraid that the simple little robot might have a nervous breakdown and start shedding capacitances in lieu of tears if it tried to hold the ship just eight hundred feet away from that Gargantuan series of ups and downs and pinnacles.

    The Past Through Tomorrow

  • Being able to model this system as a network of thermal resistances and capacitances, just like an electrical circuit, is a powerful design tool.

    Engineering Hardware-Software

  • It allows the engineer to visualize the flow of heat and the storage of thermal energy, and specify key temperatures by selection of materials and geometries that vary the network thermal resistances (conduction, convection and radiation) and capacitances.

    Engineering Hardware-Software

  • The parasitic gate-to-channel capacitances of FETs result in a large feedthrough into the signal path from the gate drive.

    Engineering Hardware-Software

  • The newly developed devices described in Nature Nanotechnology have powers per volume that are comparable to electrolytic capacitors, capacitances that are four orders of magnitude higher, and energies per volume that are an order of magnitude higher.

  • It allows the engineer to visualize the flow of heat and the storage of thermal energy and specify key temperatures by selection of materials and geometries that vary the network thermal resistances (conduction, convection, and radiation) and capacitances.

    Engineering Hardware-Software

  • Keeping the gate-to-channel distance small compared to the gate length increases device transconductances, and leads to a faster charging and discharging of intrinsic and parasitic capacitances, and ultimately, to faster transistors.

    Compound Semiconductor

  • The parasitic capacitances resulting from the overlap of electrodes can not be avoided in staggered TFT structures, but the parasitic effects must be minimized to maximize the LCD's performance.
