Understanding How Connections Work in Our Devices

By | April 20, 2017

I, like most people, have been of the belief for a very long time that analog technology is old and outdated.  This is common belief, as most of what we interact with when it comes to tech is the digital part of our devices.  However, in order for certain things to connect to each other, there is usually an analog sensor involved in the process somewhere.  I recently read an article that describes the process of converting the analog senor’s data to a digital signal in order to be presented on a digital interface; this article can be found here: http://www.microchip.com.  For anyone who wants to learn more about how this sort of tech works, I would definitely suggest looking into this article.  It is definitely something that will help you to be more educated in regards to the technology that we all use on a regular basis but do not quite understand.

The simple fact of the matter is that a lot of this stuff might seem to be over our heads, and while we use these devices on a daily basis, we might consider the connections they make to basically be magic.  I mean, after all, just fifty years ago a lot of the stuff we do with technology definitely would be considered magic.  Thankfully, there is a scientific explanation for all of this stuff, and that is why it is good to know that we can be privy to this info even if we are not techs ourselves.

Technology will continue to advance at a more and more rapid pace, and so if we want to be up to date on all of the latest information, articles like this that break it down for us laymen can definitely be very, very useful.
