I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lidow once, very briefly. But I had no idea he'd led such an extraordinary life. Wow. Nice tribute to a true electronics pioneer.

Dylan,there was an event here in the bay area years ago honoring Mr. Lidow. I missed it unfortunately. Soon after Alex Lidow was involved with GaN-on-silicon technology, Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC), we invited him to speak at IEEE Power Electronics society: Is it the End of the Road for Silicon in Power Management? “How Big Things” Happen In America. http://ewh.ieee.org/r6/scv/pels/archive/2010meetings.html MP Divakar
