A Variance Minimization Approach to Tolerance Design

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes die development of a variance minimization strategy for the tolerancing of linear circuits and systems. The technique is conceptually simple and can be implemented through commonly available optimization routines. The applicability of the approach is illustrated through standard numerical examples. In addition the paper also derives a new expression for the variance of a system performance index.
