Capacitors are one of the true “building-block” components of circuit design, along with resistors and inductors. They come in many shapes and sizes, in fixed and variable capacitance values, with tiny capacitors based on ceramic dielectric materials among the most popular for printed-circuit-board (PCB) applications.
Both single-layer and multilayer ceramic capacitors are commonly used in RF/microwave circuits, attractive for their small size for use in surface-mount elec
