Why Capacitance? Benefits & Applications of Digital Capacitive Solutions

In this paper, readers will discover digital capacitive displacement measurement solutions not possible with conventional analog systems. The following applications address a wide range of industry sectors.

IEEE 802.3 had previously defined 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s Ethernet to help alleviate bandwidth choke points in the network. Now IEEE 802.3bj adds 100 Gb/s operation over electrical backplanes and lower-cost, lighter-weight copper cables, as well as optional Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) for 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s links. These are critical enhancements to the standard that are intended to both optimize and expand Ethernet’s options for physical connectivity.”
