self-inductance

n
(General Physics) the inherent inductance of a circuit, given by the ratio of the electromotive force produced in the circuit by self-induction to the rate of change of current producing it. It is usually expressed in henries. Symbol: L Also called: coefficient of self-induction

Similarly, the equivalent self-inductance of the secondary circuit and the equivalent mutual inductances between the inductor and the secondary circuit were calculated.
The most commonly used approximation is for the partial self-inductance of a long, straight rectangular conductor, such as a lead frame in a QFN package or a connector pin.
The self-inductance changes proportionally to the cross sectional area of the band, producing a resonant frequency in the oscillation circuit.
The substantial high frequency performance improvement seen is due to the high capacitance density and more importantly, to the low self-inductance of the ultra-thin material.
Ideal for telecommunication infrastructure, networking, servers, and military and aerospace applications, the TPM mirror tantalum capacitor delivers low self-inductance (ESL) and lower equivalent series resistance (ESR) in a small package.
Self-inductance and loop inductance are the most common and mean the same thing.
Advantest's newly developed low-inductance IC socket employs cutting-edge micro-machining technology in a proprietary contact architecture, reducing self-inductance -- which causes signal degradation -- to a mere <0.
