Two great role models of mine have passed. I have enjoyed reading their articles and getting the opportunity to sit in on one of Bob's "Analog Power Point" presentations at Arrowfest a few years ago.
It will be interesting to see who will fill these shoes at Electronic Design and EDN; there are no shortage of talented Application Engineers, but I wonder if ..... In today's fast paced do more with less engineering depts; can someone obtain the "depth" of knowledge to replace Bob & Jim in a world that requires so much "breath" of knowledge to be successful.
I like Chris's spin on this topic.
P.S my favorite Programming Language is solder as well :)
