It's not often that all the planets align and the stars come together,
but this is the fourth year that the stars of the electronics world have
united under one roof to share a meal, a beer and stories and
experiences that can ignite a fertile young engineering mind, remind a
colleague of a special time shared in the history of electronics or
inspire today's engineers to innovate and press on through tough and
seemingly insurmountable challenges.
I was invited by my colleagues Michael Steffes, Intersil Apps manager
and Paul Rako, Analog Devices engineer to the fourth annual Analog
Aficionados event in Santa Clara, CA. Rako was the great impetus behind
this event and it has blossomed into 150 attendees this year.
Join our online Radio Show on Friday 11th July starting at 2:00pm Eastern, when EETimes editor of all things fun and interesting, Max Maxfield, and embedded systems expert, Jack Ganssle, will debate as to just what is, and is not, and embedded system.
