A real mensch. Perhaps he will be reincarnated. He'll come back as either an electron spin jockey or an all electric Beetle. Rest in Pease!

In early 2000's while working at PowerOne, I had an opportunity to meet with him once. His columns made much sense to a lot of engineers, even those without a formal EE education like myself. I have seen him many times since at National's campus and continued to enjoy reading his columns. It is hard to fathom that there will not be any more "What is all this ..... any how."

To Bob, no one was a low-level.

It is a sad June as we suddenly lost two analog gurus in such short time. Their contributions are so great that we all learn a lot and many were then inspired to follow their way to be analog addicted.

Bob Pease fue uno de los cerbros de national semiconductors, una persona digna de seguir, sus notas y comentarios en sus columnas inspiraron a muchos ingenieros en sus diseños. BOB descansa en paz.

And when the impact happens where does the tin whisker go? It leaves the area hwere the short happened and then all proof is lost.

I had also gotten help from Bob Pease. He had no idea who I was when I wrote him. He was willing to help me anyway. A few emails exchanged and as he had just left National he asked if he could get apid for consulting going forward. I asked my (cheap boss at a company, rimes with avis) to pay him a few hundred bucks so we coud use him from time to time. I was to embarrassed to ask for advice again without the ability to properly compensate him. My last correspondense with him was a comment/response about one of his columns about safe driving and the subject of the electronic throttle control was discussed. He still responded to my comments and was interested in a quick intelectual discussion on mechanical linkage sticking on old trucks and cars and the new electronic throttle controls. In case you did not know tin wiskers were present in many controllers investigated in the NASA investigation of the code. When a control loop has a tin whisker across the IC pin what do you think will happen? I hope he wasn't driving a hybrid. I think the grumpyness was just cover for a kind, helpfu soul. (and possibly to put collegues on notice to think first before speaking as you just might get it!) Or some combination of both to help move the day along.
