Why 100-Year-Old Analog Technology Will Never Leave Us

August 8, 2019 Embedded Computing Design

The Embedded Insiders ask the ultimate question: why can’t we replace analog circuitry with new digital material that’s far superior to anything in analog? At the very component circuit level, you still have to move electrons around and you can’t change the law of physics. We will always try to take a signal from the real world and turn it into something digital; wouldn’t that always require a certain amount of analog circuitry in a system? Can analog fight for its existence in a high-tech digital world? Tune in for more.
