    The Eyring Model has been used to derive the "power rule" for capacitors. Analytical models for evaluating progressive and step stress tests are presented. Various methods are discussed for determining the value of the exponent for the power rule. In particular, the relation between the exponent of the power rule and the beta of the Weibull distribution, for both progressive and constant stress te... View full abstract»

    Equations are derived and curves are plotted showing the change in Q of an inductor as a function of a change in size. The approach used is to assume the existence of a model having a fixed inductance and operating under a fixed set of conditions. A change in size is introduced by a magnification-type enlargement or shrinkage of all outline dimensions by the factor "a." Assuming a constant effecti... View full abstract»
