analog signal

analog signal: 1. A signal that has a continuous nature rather than a pulsed or discrete nature. Note: Electrical or physical analogies, such as continuously varying voltages, frequencies, or phases, may be used as analog signals. (188) 2. A nominally continuous electrical signal that varies in some direct correlation with another signal impressed on a transducer. (188) Note: For example, an analog signal may vary in frequency, phase, or amplitude in response to changes in physical phenomena, such as sound, light, heat, position, or pressure.
