This chapter discusses where the world of digital electronics merges with analog electronics in digitizing and sampling circuits, but the merged areas - mainly ADCs, DACs, and switched-capacitor and sampling circuits - do not involve logic design. Instead, the underlying theory is an extension of that for continuous functions. The mathematics is similar; difference equations replace differential equations. Sampled circuits also include commutating and switched-capacitor filters and digital signal processing, but the full story, including dithering, FFTs, DSP filters, and windowing, is left for other books.
