Developing a fundamental understanding of the functional performance and limitations of an electronic circuit is an excellent example of a Best Practice. This is especially inline with Toyota development engineers, which can be four times (4X) as productive as their industry counterparts. They are able to accomplish this level of efficiency because of their focus on learning as much as possible at the lowest design level and using that knowledge to develop technology that can be used appropriately in future designs.
The case studies in this paper are an excellent demonstration of where our clients used Dr. Ron Wunderlich to implement Industry Best Practices for ensuring circuit performance. An especially powerful tool was Monte Carlo and worst-case simulation. In all cases, by being involved early and often, our customers saw significant reductions in development time, development cost, and avoided significant field issues.
