Including the Effects of Component Tolerances in the Teaching of Courses in Introductory Circuit Design
With the emphasis upon design in electrical and electronics curriculums, the need for coverage in circuit design courses on how manufacturer's tolerances on resistors and capacitors will affect the circuit's response is obvious. This paper develops an analytical procedure useful for the determination of these tolerances that is suitable for use in introductory classes in active and passive circuit analysis and design. The procedure allows the determination of the proper manufacturer's tolerances on the passive components such that a given tolerance on a design parameter will not be exceeded.
