In many stripline and Multilayer Ceramic (MLC) circuits, it is desirable to have relatively high value capacitors and relatively high impedance transmis- sion lines. This can be accomplished by mixing high and low dielectric layers. When a large capacitor is desired a high dielectric layer is used between its plates. In some cases the capacitance can be increased by more than ten times while the line impedances can be maintained by using a narrower line.
