Tips from Technical Support
What is it? Why do we care?
Consider this example of digital data pulses represented by a square wave with near-vertical rises and falls entering one end of a coaxial cable, a cable with a high capacitance slows these voltage transitions so that they come out of the cable’s opposite end looking more like saw-teeth. The end result is a distortion of the signal—and your data.

Controlling Cable Capacitance
A lot of research goes into minimizing the cable capacitance. Some ways to accomplish this include increasing the wall thickness of the insulation, decreasing the conductor diameter, or using insulation with a lower dielectric constant.
But another way to handle this problem is via software correction.
