We need more analog engineers. Here's why we should help educate one another.
Integration Nation: A Call to Action
Brad Albing 1/14/2013 9 comments
It's time for design engineers to demand more from IC manufacturers. Engineers want more functionality and ease of use in the devices they design into their systems.
Integration: Old but New

Putting electronic components onto a semiconductor substrate has steadily resulted in more and more devices being integrated into a smaller space.
Superiority of Analog Integration Depends on Application
Joshua Israelsohn 1/14/2013 2 comments
While digital ICs have always scaled quickly from node to node, analog-only devices perform certain functions much better than digital, so the payoff in integrated analog isn’t in the transistor size, but the benefits to the application.
Recently, AEye, was demonstrating their LiDAR system at CES in Las Vegas. A man using his new $1,198 Sony camera found that his photographs were damaged after he took pictures of AEye’s LiDAR LASER scanning system
The e-car basic concept is represented by the role of the electronics technology in making the car more comfortable, safe and effectively interacting with the driver. The first characteristic, comfort, is nowadays being dramatically enhanced by the new solution known as Road Noise Control (acronym: RNC) that has been introduced by BOSE during the CES 2019 in Las Vegas
Early microcontrollers had fixed I/O. It may have been possible to connect one of several internal peripherals to the I/O pins, but those pins were restricted and there was never an option of conditioning those outputs
In the not too distant past, if you were seen holding a conversation with a household appliance, you might have run the risk of being committed.
The voltage regulator is a very important part of the power management and the placement of voltage regulator plays an important role in improving the performance.
