Simulating lumped filter with mcx connectors

Question asked by aprocc on Feb 10, 2005
Hi All,

I am developing a lumped element filter (wsp attached) and am trying to determine how to do an empower simulation the board taking into account the pads of the mcx connectors. 

Currently I have changed the box size to cover the middle conductor of the mcx connectors - but I am not satisfied with this approach since it leaves out a fair amount of copper area (read: capacitance).

Note: I haven't tuned the components selection yet ...

Any thoughts on how to proceed.

Regards,
Andrew
