How to build a potentiometer with familiar outputs – and unfamiliar qualities

The classic potentiometer (pot) has been used successfully in electronics system designs for decades: its strengths and weaknesses are very well understood. But what if the pot were able to be re-invented? Which characteristics would the design engineer choose to change?
This article describes how a new ams sensor IC makes it simple to design and build a pot replacement with exactly the properties of the designer’s ideal pot, and with an existing pot’s familiar ratiometric output so that the host application needs no modification at all.
