About Us

Planet Analog is an online community for designers and engineers – both newbies and wizards – interested in discussing and advancing the state-of-the-art in analog design techniques, technologies, integration, and application. With design cycles shortening, analog expertise in high demand, and access to the truly experienced analog engineer lacking, Planet Analog fills the gap between theory and practice in a community devoted to the art.

Through experienced analog editorial leadership, blogs, comments, insights, and contributions from experts in-the-know and those who wish to learn more, Planet Analog is a learning playground where analog aficionados can connect daily to hone their skills, share their discoveries, and have some fun.

Steve Taranovich
Editor in Chief

As editor-in-chief of Planet Analog, I am fully committed to bring to the engineering community, a full complement of fundamentals, tutorials and in-depth world current event electronics details that affect our lives and the world. I am returning Planet Analog to its former greatness of technical article content for the designer who needs information quickly.

In a busy designer’s day, you don’t have a great deal of time to keep up with the latest in technology and tutorial information urgently needed for your design expertise. I respect that! This is why I will bring you these brief “blogs” (A term many do not like, but in our context here at Planet Analog, this means technically-oriented, in-depth electronics information in a brief 500 word format).

May the electromotive force be with you!
