Buy versus Build

It is too easy to search the internet! You can find dozens of wonderful new semiconductors, fantastic new op-amps, dc-to-dc power sources, and in a matter of minutes you can create the next generation signal conditioner! Right? Well, not really!

Parts, and now days "inexpensive parts" are but a small part of an analog design. So, we've put together Dataforth's "Top Ten Reasons" you want to Buy (and NOT Build) your signal conditioners.

For the details, see our 1 page 54Kb PDF table.

Here's the summary of our Top Ten Buy vs. Build Table

A purchased Dataforth system is --
1. Scalable - You can easily add or remove channels
2. Flexible - You can change function types per channel
