Analog Design Blocks That Every Digital Engineer Should Know

02/12/2020, hardwarebee

Before digital electronics have been invented, all devices worked with analogue circuits. However, analogue circuits represent the real world because we live in an analogue world where all waves (sound waves, electromagnetic spectrum waves, voltage and current waves) are analogue signals. Therefore, an analogue signal represents a variation of a
