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.
These days, I often code design equations for filter circuits directly into sequences of Excel cells
The introduction of the solar boat is necessary to preserve our planet, which is mainly covered by water; the autonomous drive option is a pleasant alternative
Leading up to APEC have been a slew of new introductions by various suppliers. I wanted to highlight some of that here on Planet Analog for your information
