What are advantages and disadvantages of digital system?


  • Have made possible many scientific, industrial, and commercial advances that would have been unattainable otherwise.
  • Less expensive
  • More reliable
  • Easy to manipulate
  • Flexibility and Compatibility
  • Information storage can be easier in digital computer systems than in analog ones. New features
  • can often be added to a digital system more easily too. 

Disadvantages of digital system:

  • Use more energy than analog circuits to accomplish the same tasks, thus producing more heat as well.
  • Digital circuits are often fragile, in that if a single piece of digital data is lost or misinterpreted the meaning of large blocks of related data can completely change.
  • Digital computer manipulates discrete elements of information by means of a binary code.
  • Quantization error during analog signal sampling.
