Chapter 35 Summary: Power Subsystem Inductance Inductance is the most significant problem in designing a high-frequency power distribution system. This chapter discusses the four major contributors to power distribution inductance, as well as aspects of physical design that can increase PCB inductance. Plus, readers will learn how the size and via placement of a capacitor can have a major effect on the effective series inductance of that capacitor, often changing its inductance by a factor of 2.
