An analytical method for determining the line capacitance of a microstrip line is presented. The solution is exact, but it is expressed by means of the solution of an infinite system of linear equations whose coefficients are the result of certain numerical quadratures. The analysis is carried out for the case of two dielectric substrates. Changes to include additional stratified layers are readily available using the transfer matrix method described by P.M. van Berg et al. (1985). Comparison of the results obtained using the proposed formula with those obtained using exact formulas (available in particular cases) shows that, in cases of practical interest, it is sufficient to consider only the first two equations in the above-mentioned infinite set of linear equations
