  • solenoid design;
  • example


The design of a solenoid inductor was described in Chapter 2. An example for a 100 nH solenoid design at 200 MHz is shown using the program SOLENOID where the bold type indicates user inputs. After initial values for the solenoid are given, the form length and number of integral turns are modified, but the form diameter remains unchanged. The interwire capacitance, C, the self-resonant frequency, Fres, and the Q are calculated.
