4.2 How to Avoid Design Problems by Using Worst Case Analysis Calculations
2020 Automotive TI Tech Day session
How can you avoid situations when a circuit you’ve designed is failing in production test and the line is shut down? This happens in manufacturing all too often, because of part tolerances, and poor design fundamentals. You can avoid this scenario by understanding the key parameters/tolerances of the components being used in the circuitry you are designing, and how to perform worst case analysis on that circuitry. Using design examples, we will go through in detail what to analyze, and how to perform the calculations. The discussion will include detail on op-amps, voltage regulators, resistors, capacitors, MOSFETs, diodes and generalized ICs.
