This report is an update of one issued in 1977 which predicted that the predicted death of analog circuitry also called linear would not occur in fact, the patient appeared remarkably healthy. The report proved correct. We have the same situation again today the same predictions and counter-prediction. Each year brings significant advances in the field of analog integrated circuitry. Many of the traditional arguments against analog circuitry are no longer valid. This report attempts to summarize what is available now, and what can and cannot be done with analog integrated circuits. It defines analog and makes some comparisons with digital. The most common types of analog integrated circuits are then listed and discussed. Lastly, some design and trouble-shooting hints are given, and the state-of-the-art is discussed. Author
