Wrote the following:
|Hello Spice gurus,
|I would like to learn how to evaluate the limits of a circuit's
|characteristics due to the variation of the parameters of the real world
|parts, with Spice. I mean the technological variation of a given part
|type, in the limits specified in the datasheet. I guess that I need to
|go through the simplest cases first, but my current practical interest
|is evaluating the maximum THD of a three-bjt circuit, on the space of
|the technological and temperature variations of all the parts (some
|resistances, one zener, three bjts). Thanks a lot for any pointers /
Use Monte Carlo or worst-case.
