Inductors and Capacitors
Use the inductor and capacitor objects and functions to create and visualize printed circuit board (PCB) inductors and capacitors. Passive components like inductors and capacitors find a major role in system-level design.
Spiral inductors are used in RF and microwave PCB circuits as resonant-circuit elements and chokes in power supplies, voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs), low-noise amplifiers (LNAs), mixers, and intermediate frequency filters (IFFs).
Interdigital capacitors are used as antenna radiators in lab-on-chip (LOC) devices, microchips, and medical applications. These capacitors are also used in the material sciences space to measure conductivity, permittivity, and permeability of materials.
