ANALOG SIGNALS &DIGITAL SIGNALS

BY: JACOB RIOS

ANALOG SIGNALS FACTS


Analog Signals


•Continuous

•Infinite range of values

•More exact values, but more difficult to work with


EX:

A analog thermostat would say 74.295 but a digital thermostat would read 74

DIGITAL SIGNALS FACTS


Digital Signals


•Discrete

•Finite range of values (2)

•Not as exact as analog, but easier to work with


EX:

A digital thermostat would say 74 but a analog thermostat would say 74.421

Example of analog signals

  • An analog signal can be any time different signal.
  • Minimum and maximum values can be either positive or negative.
  • They can be repeating or non-repeating.


EXAMPLE of DIGITAL Signals


  • Digital signal are commonly referred to as square waves or clock signals.
  • They can be periodic (repeating) or non-periodic.
  • Their lowest possible value must be 0 volts, and their highest possible value must be 5 volts.

Opinion and websites

  1. I think digital is better because since analog signals are infinite then it would be easier to hack the console
