Definitions for "Dielectric"
Any substance or medium that transmits the electric force by a process different from conduction, as in the phenomena of induction; a nonconductor, separating a body electrified by induction, from the electrifying body.
is a conductor of electric charge in which an applied electric field causes a displacement of charge but not a flow of charge.
The nonconducting material used to separate conducting materials. New copper/low-k interconnects have shown to improve circuit density, speed, reliability, and reduce interconnect cross-talk.
the average voltage gradient at which dielectric failure or breakdown occurs under prescribed conditions. The dielectric strength is expressed in volts per mil of thickness.
