capacitive coupling

Electronics
The intentional or fortuitous transfer of energy within an electrical network by capacitance between circuit nodes.

Surgery
A potential endoscopic electrosurgical hazard, which occurs when electrical current is transferred from one conductor —e.g., an active electrode surrounded by insulation—into adjacent conductive materials—e.g., a trocar or tissue. The risk of tissue damage can be reduced by using low-power, low-voltage settings with intermittent rather than prolonged bursts, and by not operating near metal or conductive objects in the operative field.

There are three types of AC coupling: resistive, capacitive and inductive.
Begin by reading and understanding the description in 1149.6 of possible implementations of AC coupling on high-speed 10 signals.
The last RF stages of the receiver are active low pass filters with an AC coupling for the I and Q outputs.
AC coupling allows us to use distributed arrays of more than 4000 junctions that have larger output voltage as compared to the previously used lumped arrays with only 250 junctions.

The Model: DCD is innovatively designed whereby DC isolation is achieved and AC coupling is maintained, ensuring electrical grounding criteria remains effective.
Additional features include support for both 62.5[micro] and 50[micro] industry standard MTP/MPO multi-mode ribbon fibers; and the data I/O is AC coupling, PECL, LVDS and CML compatible.
For example, AC coupling is used to block the DC component of a waveform, but good low-frequency response requires a large value capacitor and its attendant charging time.
However, other modulation schemes present a peak at DC, and capacitive AC coupling will lead to significant information loss, hence considerably degrading the bit error rate (BER).
Researchers recently have demonstrated an ac coupling technique that increases the useful output voltage for metrology measurements.

If you use a combination DC/AC current probe, set the oscilloscope for AC coupling to prevent measurement error that would result from a DC offset within the probe.
