velocity . pressure. Analog vs Digital Systems • Digital – ON and OFF – 0 and 1 • Analog – continuously varying – temperature.

Digital Representations of Analog Quantities Eg: • Audio Recording – CD or DAT • Conversions – Digital-to-Analog – Analog voltage to 8-bit Digital equivalent .

Processing digitized signals takes time. 4. Operation can be programmed. Data/Information can be processed easier. 3. Limitations of Digital Techniques: 1. Data/Information storage is easy.Advantages of Digital Techniques: 1. 2. Digital systems are generally easier to design. Digital circuits are less affected by noise 5. The real world is analog. Accuracy and precision are easier to maintain throughout the system. . 2.
