A term that literally means no moving parts, such as a transistor rather than a mechanical switch. Semiconductor devices are thought of as solid state. Many people incorrectly associate the term digital with solid state. That however, is incorrect. Analog is the opposite of digital and though they are often made with solid state devices, many analog devices are NOT digital.
