Main Question or Discussion Point
Is it possible to design a cable with properties (Capacitance and Inductance) to reduce the number of components needed for the PI filter? I know I can design a cable to have a specific capacitance and specific inductance, but I am not sure if or how i would get these to work with the pi filter. A pi filter has a shunt capacitor, a series inductor and another shunt capacitor If I use the shield of a coax cable as my gound and design the capacitance correct for one of my capacitors in the filter could I get by eliminating one of the capacitors and just placing a series inductor and shunt capacitor in the circuit? Is it possible to use both a designed in capacitance and inductance and only add the second shunt capacitor?
