How to Reduce Parasitic Capacitance in PCB Layout

How to Reduce Parasitic Capacitance in PCB Layout

A PCB consists of several parallelly spanned conductors, say traces, separated by an insulator. These traces, along with dielectric material, form a capacitor, resulting in an unwanted parasitic capacitance or stray capacitance effect. Parasitic elements in a PCB...
