|That's fine if you have the time.
|But what if you need to design a circuit before a deadline, for a
|certain cost, operating under a variety of environmental conditions, for
|assembly in a factory by people who don't know how it works (yet who
|still must test it), using parts whose characteristics vary randomly
|initially and later with age and temperature, satisfying the regulatory
|agencies for safety and EMC compliance, while integrating with existing
|devices and remaining serviceable in the field for a certain period
|without running down the batteries.
|Oh yeah, it has to fit in the housing too.
|That's some tweaking.
Now, now, Joseph, let's not introduce any reality into this thread ;-)
