Analog VS Digital signals
By: Jordan Boon
Three Examples of Analog Signals
Three types of analog signals is a hand clock, a record player, and a tape player. The hand clock needs to move at all times to work, that's a quality of an analog signal. The record player uses signals as really small waves on the disk that look like waves. The "mind" of the record player( the computer ) translates these waves into sound. Then sends it to the speaker which put out the sound that we here with our ears. The same kind of thing happens with a tape player except the thing that has the signals on is rules up and plays that way, untangling itself.
Three Examples of Digital Signals
Three examples of a something that has a digital signal is a CD player, an IPhone, and Laptops. The CD player uses patterns called land( the spaces ) and pits ( holes/ crevices ). Something having a pattern is quality of a digital signal. The computer connected to the cd reads the patterns and turns it into a wave. That wave is sent out to from the speakers to our ears so we can hear music. iPhones also use digital signals because they proses the numbers in patterns to make programming and content show up on our screen. With laptops the same thing happens with the patterns as the IPhone.
Three Diffrences From Analog and Digital Signals
- Analog signals is continuos ( there's no breaks and no interruptions ) and digital signals are not continuous .
- Sound is allready naturally analog so if you had a device that was digital it would have both analog and digital signals.
- The analog signal waves are round unlike the digital waves that are square.
Three Differences of Analog and Digital Technology
- Analog is clearer and has a better outcome than digital that that is not as exact
- Analog signal are harder to use than digital
- Analog technology translates patterns and digital technology translates pulses
Digital a Better Because...
- The digital technology is more modern than analog technology and that's what people like now days.
- Analog can pock up other signals on the way so analog technology aren't as clear as digital technology.
- Analog is harder to do and takes more money to make it good than digital technology that cost less.
