Analog Integration Visionary


Abstract: Analog circuits are built inside many mostly digital chips to allow a bridge between our analog world and the digital intelligence in a microprocessor. Many people’s first encounter with a talking computer was Star Trek. We quote an unusual source for an analog visionary. And use a smart phone to illustrate the human interface or analog functions. Things such as touch screen, voice commands, LCD screen, ring, vibrate, speaker phone, battery and battery charging, even radio waves are analog.
