Golden words by Mr.Bob Dobkin i enjoyed or it penetrated through me "If you design products that are at the limit achievable in performance, then once you've made it you don't have to do it again"

I love the casual way these analog guys were jerking around with the AC line, synthesizing a different AC line power frequency just for a clock prank. In computing terms, that would be like, oh, reprogramming a hard drive so that it altered your filenames to amusing alternatives; working perfectly but not how you expect.

This reminds me the story of how Garmin was started by few former Honeywell employees. You can't really prevent people from innovating.

Underestimation of the genius people gives birth of new creation. National Semiconductor that way helped the world.

I really appreciated finding the "Over the Top" LT1783 opamp a few years back. This was the only opamp I could find that allowed the inputs to go up to 18 volts regardless of supply voltage. Was exactly what I needed.

Personally, I'd like to find the guy there that rolled out LGA-packaged power modules and skin him alive... other than that, LTSpice is handy!

I'm very happy to receive the samples on time for every request I made so far. I really appreciate the quality of the analog solutions from Linear. Good to see that the leaders in the company has a focus to make the products available to the customers for longer time...that would reduce the obsolescence nightmare. And a really enjoyable story!
