Analog Signals


Analog is a continuous signal, measuring features that are difficult to break into digital components, such as pressure, temperature, voltage, current and air and water-flow. The circuits are used in products that involve sound (radios, TVs) and pressure (automotive air bags, anti-lock brakes).
