Series Resonant Frequency

The inherent series resonant frequency (SRF) of a single layer chip capacitor is the highest of any discrete lumped constant capacitor. Since connections must be made to the chip, the resultant SRF is lowered and mainly determined by the inductance of the connections (wire or ribbon), the size of the chip, and the location of the connections. As a result of these variables, among others, the best feasible determination of usability is in situ.
