Noise limits information transmission in analog systems. Real analog systems possess intrinsic physical noise such as thermal noise and flicker noise and inevitably suffer degradation of information content. This loss in information can be reduced if the analog system operated at frequencies where noise is minimal. Using principles of low power circuit design and information theory, we present a method to estimate the information transfer rates of analog systems and to determine the maximum… CONTINUE READING
