The use of Monte Carlo samples of interpolated data from a linearly spaced grid of electromagnetic simulation data for yield analysis is investigated. The motivation for this approach stems from a desire to have accurate yield metrics without the need to fabricate a large number of circuits or run a large number of full wave simulations. A means to estimate circuit yield values with relatively little computational effort is presented. A Wilkinson power divider designed with Sonnet's electromagnetic simulation engine, em, is provided as a simple example.
