Beware of cheating physics: dielectrics which have a high dielectric
constant are also slow (wave propagation), so the portion of the plane
charge available to a given circuit node is reduced compared to using low
dielectric constant materials.

Earlier today Charles Grasso (email@example.com) posted a message about the
NCMS Buried Capacitance Project which in part read as follows:

The flyer attachment he alluded to was deleted by the si-list mail server
due to it's size. I have scraped the deleted bitsand bytes out of the
bit-bucket and have posted them on the si-list archives web site.
The flyer can be accesed by going to the si-list web site at
and clicking on the EDC Conference link or you can get there directly at
the following URL:
