The Sensitivity Analysis identifies which component parameters are critical to the design goals of circuit performance. By analyzing the behavior of components for the entire circuit, it evaluates yield versus cost tradeoffs, thereby maximizing cost-effectiveness.
Use Sensitivity Analysis for:
- Identifying the sensitive components within the circuit, then export the components to Optimizer to fine-tune the circuit behavior.
- Estimating worst-case performance of the circuit given the device tolerances.
- Identifying which components affect yield the most, then tighten tolerances of sensitive components and loosen tolerances of non-sensitive components.
