Analog and mixed signal ICs are integrated circuits in which many discrete logic and/or analog components are fabricated on a single chip of semiconductive material and packaged in a single case to form a functional unit.
Electronic amplifiers are board level components for amplifying voltage, current or power. Various types include linear, log and op amps.
Data acquisition and signal conditioning IC collect, amplify, digitize and process multiple sensor or signal inputs for the purpose of monitoring, analyzing and/or controlling systems and processes.
Data conversion chips transform data (information) from one format to another, such from analog to digital.
