PIT: Discrete Passives
To demonstrate the possibility of making passive electronic components (i.e., capacitors and inductors) from interlocking discrete parts.
How do you create pure electronic components out of a small set (e.g., two) discrete parts?
For a given unit volume (e.g., 5mm^2 for SOIC pitch) what is the max/min capacitance, inductance, and resistance?
Theoretical simulation of possibilities at smaller scales
Purity of electronic compenent (e.g., how little resistance and inductance can a discretely assembled capacitor have?)
Density of electronic compenent (e.g., how much capacitance/inductance per unit volume is possible?)
