Analog Paradigm by Anabrid

Newsletter #16 (September 2023)

Welcome to the fourteenth newsletter on all things THAT (THE ANALOG THING).

The current THAT batch

We nearly managed to stay close to the timeline published in the last newletter if it wouldn't have been to customs... *sigh* This hurdle cost several weeks (and caused quite some gray hair on our side) but has finally been resolved.

Rikka has been busy manually wrapping 300 card board boxes and populating the THAT boxes with the necessary cables, booklet, etc. while we were waiting for customs to clear the parcels for final delivery:

Then, finally, the many boxes with FRONT and BASE PCBs arrived in Frankfurt:

...and here is the very first THAT of the current batch - hoooray! :-)

We are now assembling THATs and will start testing next week with shipping beginning at September 18th.

All things THAT and analog computing in general

Michael Koch has written an incredible book, the THAT Analog Computer Book containing a wealth of examples, tips, and tricks. I (Bernd) highly recommend downloading it - it is a true treasure trove!

Psst: Be the first to know about our next product announcement...

At anabrid GmbH, we have been busy not only with THE ANALOG THING (THAT), but also with the development of new products. One of them is about to be launched this year. It has a comparable form factor to THAT, but is way more powerful in every respect. The laboratory prototypes are already up and running and have already seen a wide variety of interesting applications.

Want to learn more? Stay tuned for further information which we will release in a few weeks.

Happy analog computing!


As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at if you have questions regarding THE ANALOG THING.
