PF

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for FRENCH POLYNESIA.

PF

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for French Polynesia. This is the code used in international transactions to and from French Polynesian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for French Polynesia. This is used as an international standard for shipping to French Polynesia.

pf

Used in stock transaction tables in newspapers to indicate the stock is a preferred issue. Issues without any designation are common stock. A capital letter (that is, an A, B, or C) beside pf indicates the particular issue of preferred listed: GaPc pfC2.24.

Our discharge capacitor is about 150 picofarads, so the intrinsic capacitance of our ground plane system must be many times that amount.
However, due to its high value (several picofarads or almost nanofarad), this capacitance needs to be an external component, reducing the bandwidth of the regulator.
The capacitances in picofarads (pF) are measured for each layer in both coupons and then plotted, demonstrating how the two boards will present different construction profiles.
where C is capacitance in picofarads, A is area in square inches, [epsilon] dielectric constant of the insulator, D is a conversion factor (225) and t is the dielectric insulator thickness in mils.
The measured capacitance of the alumina sensor is on the order of 70 picofarads (pF) in the absence of polymer.
