SPECIAL ISSUES          <return to top>

Volume 35, 2001 (35th Anniversary Bonus Material)

In addition to the articles that were published on the Web in 2001, this special issue of Analog Dialogue contains 35th anniversary bonus material including six Ask the Applications Engineer articles, plus a five-part article on selecting mixed-signal components for digital communications systems.

Ask The Applications Engineer (30th Anniversary Reader Bonus)

This special issue of Analog Dialogue was offered as a bonus to our faithful readers and an encouragement to new readers. We have reprinted here the popular series Ask The Applications Engineer from its inception in 1988 through Number 23 in 1996.

The Best of Analog Dialogue, 1967-1991 (25th Anniversary Bonus Edition)

Published to celebrate the first 25 years of continuous publication. Based on the votes of readers, we selected from the first 25 years a series of articles distinguished by either their lasting tutorial value or their celebration of technological landmarks in analog-, digital-, and mixed signal processing.

 

ABOUT THIS ARCHIVE (A Note From the Editors)          <return to top> 

This PDF archive of Analog Dialogue captures a printed journalistic history of products, technologies, and applications Analog Devices has been involved in, from Volume 1, Number 1, in 1967, the second year after the Company's founding, to the present. It includes many of our successes—"firsts"ť and "bests"ť—and yes, even a few egregious failures, deservedly lost in the mists of history. You will also meet many of the design, marketing, and applications engineers who contributed to this effort, as well as its editors—and so will get a flavor of the times.

Note well: A few cautions are necessary. The earlier pages were reproduced without further editing and may contain inaccuracies, perhaps even a few serious errors, especially in light of the passage of time. Since many of the products mentioned, especially in the earliest days, are obsolete and perhaps long forgotten, even by us, the material you encounter in these pages may be the only surviving record of their existence. Any expectations of obtaining further information from us should properly be low. Looking back at sampled pages, we find them quite readable, but—even with high resolution scanning—the detail in some of the illustrations is inevitably lost. You may have to tap your own creativity to guess at the details. Finally, because the scanning technique does not recognize characters, sufficient information has not been available to conveniently assemble a helpful index the easy way.

So, with these caveats, you are invited to plunge into this literary stream and browse through our global flow of signal-processing products, technologies, and applications.
