    A printed circuit board via is analyzed as a collection of sections bounded by grounded planes. A semianalytical expression for the capacitance of such a section is deduced and numerically adapted to solutions obtained with the finite‐element method. For high permittivities, one may also estimate the capacitance of a via terminating at a dielectric interface.
