Analyze part of your design using Excel

My PhD research is examining how OO can be used to assist in the design and simulation phase of a product.
So it came as a surprise to me to read that Excel can be used to assist in the same process.
Excel by Example: A Microsoft Excel Cookbook for Electronics Engineers by Aubrey Kagan shows you how you can use the ubiquitous spreadsheet application to model and analyze parts of your design.
Areas of exploration include designing a character generator for dot-matrix displays, exploring resistor combinations, setting up processor registers, handling Bode plots, adjusting counter/timers, and even optimizing power-supply circuits.
