Analog Dialogue

Analog Dialogue is a technical magazine published by Analog Devices (ADI). It is a forum for the exchange of circuits, systems, and software for real-world signal processing. It discusses products, applications, technology, and techniques for analog, digital, and mixed-signal processing, serving as a gateway to ADI’s technology. Analog Dialogue is published monthly on the Web. Featured technical articles are also compiled in quarterly print editions. The headquarters of the magazine is in Norwood, Massachusetts.


Published every year since 1967, Analog Dialogue is the longest-running in-house publication in the electronics industry. Its online version, published since 1999, includes articles written by design, applications, and marketing engineers at Analog Devices. Subject matter includes tutorials, technology, applications, and other information about products for analog, digital, and mixed-signal processing; information on new products, hyperlinked to data sheets and other information; and a potpourri section with links to other information, mostly on the ADI website.

Starting in 2010, Analog Dialogue was also published in eBook formats for the Kindle, NOOK, iPod, iPad, and iPhone, and other electronic formats.

The online archives provide access to every article published in Analog Dialogue, beginning with Volume 1, Number 1, first published in 1967. Every article can be accessed by volume and by author.
