RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Yield & Sensitivity Analysis Histogram in ADS - RF Cafe Forums
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Post subject: Yield & Sensitivity Analysis Histogram in
ADS Posted: Tue Aug 16, 2005 4:17 pm
Anyone know of a good tutorial
for using statistical sensitvity yield analysis in ADS. Can anyone explain
how to use and read the histograms using the histogram_sens() function
in ADS. I looked at the manual but the results don't make much sense.
What is a sensitivity histogram exactly representin? Let's say I am
running analysis on S21 with Cgs being my statistical variable. Any
help will be much appreciated.

The component sensitivity
histogram can be used to determine how sensitive the yield is to the
parameter variations. The histogram can also indicate if the yield could
be improved by changing the nominal value of the parameter.
histogram displays the percentage yield as a function of the parameter
Each bar in the histogram represents one bin.
