Using a practical approach that allows engineers and technicians to pu t the techniques directly into practice, the author presents the mathe matical procedures used to determine performance limits. The topics an d techniques discussed include extreme value and root-sum-square analy sis using symmetric and asymmetric tolerance, Monte Carlo analysis usi ng normal and uniform distributions, sensitivity formulas, tolerance a nalyses of opamp offsets, and anomalies of high-Q ac circuits.

"...offers a comprehensive, step-by-step treatment of methods used to perform analysis essential to the design process of circuit cards & systems of cards, including worst-case analysis."
