Spreadsheet Applications for Electronic Circuits Design 921703
There are many computer aids for electronic devices and circuit analysis or simulation. There are also graphic packages for drawing complex electronic circuits and in some cases even for an analysis of the circuit drawn.
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate, by example, the application of spreadsheet to electronic circuits design.
Two ideas presented in addition to standard spreadsheets, are incorporating two items on the spreadsheet screen. These items are the circuit diagram and graphs showing almost instantaneously the results of any parameter changes. The spreadsheet used is Quattro Pro 4.0.
