Simulation and measurement are essential to the process of designing electronics. How are they different? If we’re referring to waveforms, hopefully there is very little difference. You always want your simulated waveforms to look exactly like your lab measurements. But understanding the differences between the capabilities and limitations of both measurement and simulation are essential to making that happen. Simulation and measurement allow unique insight into the performance of your electronic design and complement each other in many ways.
