Default Re: Need capacitor meter

Well, yeah, RF, but are you actually measuring capacitors or are you measuring cable capacitance or something to that extent? -- because around the 3pf range, the capacitance is so low that people tend to take two pieces of wire and twist them together. This means inaccuracy is rampant and you'll need to somehow design without exact capacitances unless you're building the caps on silicon, and you're not using a capacitor meter on silicon...
