Making Capacitors from Coaxial Cable

Capacitor Value

Precision capacitors from about 1 pF upwards may be made from short lengths of coaxial cable, with the inner conductor being one capacitor plate and the outer shield being the other.

Provide the desired capacitance, in picoFarads (pF) that will be calculated.
