Programmable analogue is the answer, but not always

Like nearly everything else in the semiconductor industry today, hardware system designers are trying to do more with less. When you add a new single-point-function integrated circuit, you need time for evaluation, to read a new datasheet, and even get support from the IC vendor. Each part that has to be stocked and given a unique stencil on the PCB requires more money and time. A new IC requires floor space for storage, a product number set up in the end customer’s system, then someone to log new orders and perform additional checks and functions. All this time, effort, and floor space add up, so maintaining a new IC is typically estimated around $600 to $800/year. It is generally recognized that the more design reuse you can do, the quicker you can get to market. You will also minimise costs, risk, and design complexities. In this article we talk about programmable analo...
