Figure 7

For each graph, the upper and lower bound describe a 2σ deviation from the expected mixing ratio, such that the shaded region, effectively the simulated operating space, is established by the manufacturer tolerance that suggests 95% of the constructed resistor elements will fall within specification. Experimental data lie within the simulated operational working space for the (a) 2-inlet Fork Topology, (b) 3-inlet Fork Topology, and (c) 3-inlet Ladder Topology.
