Obtaining accept-able and pre-dictable circuit performance can be very challenging with all the component tolerances and manufacturing vari-ations involved. The vari- ations can be due to spe-cific processes or discrete components used in circuit design. For robust circuit and system design these variations need to be accounted for and examined during the circuit or system simulation stages to help designers gain confi-dence in quality of the design. This type of simulation is commonly referred to as statisti-cal analysis. This article outlines the intrica-cies of statistical analysis and makes design-ers aware of the various types of statistical analyses which can be performed to gain addi-tional confidence during the design process.
