Not only are they made of analog devices, but at the speeds things have been
running at for the last 20 (maybe 30) years, they often behave like analog
devices. Things like transmission line theory, crosstalk, oscillation, etc are
all important design considerations.

Subject: Digital circuits and analog devices
So I have this memory of a set of law promulgated by an engineer at DEC, one of
which was something to the effect that 'all digital circuits are made out of
analog devices'. However, my memory doesn't recall where I saw this, and my
Google-fu is not strong enough to turn it up. Can anyone help?
