#### Calculation Notes

Coplanar traces are commonly found in printed circuit boards, where one trace is the signal and the other is the return. The trace separation should be constant along the trace length.

Factors that influence the inductance calculation include:-

• Trace width (w)
• Trace separation (s)
• Trace length (l)
• Trace thickness (t)
• Relative permeability (µr)

\mu_{0} = 4\pi \times 10^{-7}\;Wb\;A^{-1}\;m^{-1} (permeability of free space)

Inductance \approx l\times\frac{\mu_{0}\times \mu_{r}}{\pi}\times cosh^{-1}\;\frac{s}{w}

where

s \gg w, w > t
