Martin Rowe
Martin Rowe

Martin Rowe served as technical editor and senior technical editor at Test & Measurement World for 20 years including three years as EDN Design Ideas editor. During that time, Martin covered a wide range of technologies and companies. Technologies included bench instruments such as oscilloscopes, meters, signal sources and their applications. His favorite applications for these instruments were high-speed signal measurements, basic measurements (voltage, current, power), calibration, and EMC/EMI/RFI. All of these apply directly to connectors and connectivity. From 2004 to 2012, Martin visited numerous companies to learn how engineers performed test. Visits included Bose, DeWalt, and Tyco Electronics (now TE Connectivity). 

Martin's claim to fame comes from music, where he's written six songs about life as an engineer. It all started in 2006 with "The Measurement Blues," proving that you can write a blues about anything. Even connectors have made it into Martin's songs. "Below a GigaHertz" pays homage to engineers to whom working with signals below 1 GHz is ancient history. Martin has performed "The Measurement Blues" and "The Lab in the corner" live at IEEE EMC Symposia

Martin holds a BSEE from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an MBA from Bentley College.
