That's a nice article that explains it in easy terms for the layman. With more reporters like that, we might have an audiophile revolution. Or not

It's not. It's an ``op amp,'' a tiny device that can be used to amplify electronic signals in devices from cell phones to PCs, and it is one of the most common tools produced by analog designers. Dietz has made the world's smallest op amp -- known as ``silicon dust''; it's about the size of one letter printed on this page.
any volunteers?

a frined of mine made the same comment a while ago. being an avid audiophile, he said if he wasn't a code monkey he'd be building amps along with me. it's quite sad that all of the talented young techies are sucked into the computer industry.

Skippy: Yes it is sad that most new talent is diong Programing nowdays. This has been the situation for about 20 Years now and this is why there is a shortage of Good Analog Designers.

I've seen that too. Some 13 years ago when I was starting university, all the smart young people (winners of mathematics/physics competitions etc.) were going for computer science. No wonder we still have no fusion (other than in bombs).
