adj.
Of, relating to, or being a device in which data or a signal is represented by continuously variable, measurable, physical quantities, such as length, width, voltage, or pressure.

[French analogue, analogous, analog, from Medieval Latin analogus, from Greek analogos, proportionate; see analogous.]
