Is analogue design getting harder?

A recent survey by New Electronics suggests that 32% of electronics engineers believe analogue design is getting harder because of increasing technology complexity.

This means they are relying more on field application engineers (FAEs) to help them through the design minefield, but they are also looking for more help from manufacturers.

Responding, device developers are building web communities; allowing engineers to help each other. And New Electronics has done exactly the same; creating the Forum. If you have an analogue problem, why not go to the Forum and post your question?
