In memory of Dana

Dana Sehnert who worked for me at Analog Solutions as a Vice President and Account Mgr. for the last 7 years has passed away on November 20, 2012. It is a very sad time here at Analog Solutions. Our prayers are with his wife Lisa and his 3 daughters, especially during this Holiday Season.

Happy Holidays

Wherever you are celebrating your Holiday, hopefully with loved ones and family.... I want to wish you a happy and peaceful time. Precious are the moments we have, and there is never a guarantee of another day.

I will be with my family and enjoying a great Holiday time this season. And with the new year approaching, I am excited about the optimistic 2013 forecast for our Semiconductor Analog Industry. We've already had great interest for Executive Technology Employees and we are ready to hit the ground running in the New Year.

Best to you and yours this Holiday Season!

Numerous items our Analog World Develops

Most of us know, but just a bit of education for those not in our Analog world...what Analog chips do!

Analog chips are small electronic circuits. Unlike digital chips that can differentiate only between "on" and "off" signals, analog chips can process gradations. In practical terms, digital chips are the best at manipulating or storing data bits as the numeral 1 or the numeral 0, and analog chips can read and process waveforms such as speech, music and video. Hence, analog chips create a bridge to the digital world full of storage and manipulation capabilities.

Examples of Uses

Digital cameras, cell phones, Internet telephony and downloading or uploading Internet audio, video or image files all involve analog technology. The typed word "hello" is simple for a digital chip to understand, but only analog chips can understand the spoken word. Storage on compact discs (CDs) and digital versatile discs (DVDs) is digital. Analog chips are used as translators to bridge the gaps into and out of the digital world, converting waveforms into digital data, then reassembling the data back into waveforms for it to be seen or heard. The digital format provides the storehouse.
