What would people expect the characteristic impedance
to be of a 4" x 6" x 4mil FR-4 structure?
Parallel plates are just two dimensional transmission
lines with L and C being in units of H/area and F/area.
The equations pop out pretty much the same as a one
dimensional transmission line, i.e.
vprop = 1/sqrt(LC)
Z0 = sqrt(L/C)
In fact, there's some pretty neat derivations
for parallel plates such as
Z0 = sqrt(mu/epsilon)*d/w
d = distance of separation
w = width
ignoring fringing effects.
Just was wondering if anyone has done any
research into correlating pure theory
