differential amplifier inaccuracy resistors exercise to calculate CMRR

The common mode gain for a differential amplifier in the general case is: $${V_o \over V_c }={ R_1R_4-R_2R_3 \over R_1(R_3 + R_4) }$$ simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab ...

Capacitor tolerance at high frequencies

I was measuring a 10pF 0603 +-5% (Johanson 251R14S100JV4S) using a network analyzer at 319.5MHz. The cap came in their high q/low ESR ceramic kit. It measured about 10.7pF. But after measuring a few ...
