Although Jacob Bernoulli (1654-1705) has been credited as the creator of "Binomial Distribution Table", Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) did his dissertation on the subject in 1666; Leibniz you may recall is the co-inventor of "Calculus" and beat Isaac Newton by several years in publishing his work. Actually, it was Jacob's brother Johann Bernoulli (1667-1748), an academic who made sense of Leibniz's notes and was primarily responsible for getting Leibniz's "Calculus" published. In fact, it was Johann that coined the term "Integral" (Leibniz called it sums), and may have even been responsible for the calculus symbology. If the name Bernoulli sounds familiar and you're an engineer, it's probably Johann's son Daniel Bernoulli you recall.

For over 300 years, mathematicians and statisticians have used the Binomial Distribution to group and model real world observations and is the basis of many other statistical distributions.

Here are my spreadsheets if you want to take a look at them:

Whether you are designing precision imaging systems, high frequency electronic system, or other high speed system, simulation tools are a critical for designing, analyzing, and validating the functionality of your circuits for use in your next PCB.
Most of us live by Coffee. However, are you disguising the flavor of cheap store-bought grounds (or worse, k-cups) with chemical-induced creamers?  There is a much better option, and it is easier than you think!
