What can I use Analog IO for?

Digital compared to analog waveform

Analogue (UK English) or Analog (US English) is any continuous signal, in this case electrical, where a voltages and/or current varies continuously over time. It is different to Digital signal, which is represented by a discrete time and value, such as binary. Whilst a typical Digital signal is either 1 or 0, Analogue has the potential for an infinite number or values. This can be seen by the different patterns the signals make.

There are many applications where an Analogue signal is the only method of data collection. Examples of things with analogue patterns include; sound, pressure, position, light and temperature. Those of us old enough may remember turning the dials on our televisions or radios to pick up the analogue signal. Whilst the ‘noise’ in analogue audio and video signals has led to it being replaced with Digital there are many applications where the monitoring and controlling of continuous information is dependant on the almost infinite gradation that Analogue can provide.

The Internet of things

It is widely believed that up to 30 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2020. Real world data is can come from any source. To interact with the real world electronic devices will always need an analogue interface.Real world applications with analogue data:

  • Energy – wind, solar, hydro and energy storage, power monitoring, electric/gas/water metering
  • Aerospace – radar, satellite communications, avionics
  • Construction –control and automation systems, security and video surveillance, HVAC, lighting
  • Healthcare – medical scanning, X-ray, ECG, Blood pressure and pulse Oximetry, Blood testing, fitness testing
  • Manufacturing – weighing equipment, temperature control, asset tracking, motor control, robotics, test and measurement, environmental monitoring
