Mixed Signal & Analogue

While digital electronics tends to get more than its fair share of coverage, analogue electronics remains the technology that makes things happen. It’s the interface between the real world and the 1s and 0s of the digital domain.

The range of technologies falling into the analogue domain is wide; everything from data conversion to amplification to switches. Like electronics in general, analogue products are getting more complex as device developers look to integrate more functionality. Recognising this, manufacturers have started to develop more capable design tools to support engineers.

Because analogue design is so important, New Electronics covers all aspects of the technology regularly.

Class D audio amp reduces component count

Integrating an advanced 32step up/down volume control, the PAM8407 Class D audio amplifier from Diodes is optimised to reduce component count in a range of stereo speaker applications, including PCs, docking stations and wireless speakers.

Analogue amp promises clearer sound in cars

STMicroelectronics' TDA7802 is said to be the first automotive start/stop compatible audio power amplifier to combine the performance and cost benefits of a digital input with the simplicity and efficiency of analogue class SB-I amplification.
