In 2011, the analog community lost legendary design engineer Bob Pease. Today, Bob’s passion lives on through the work of engineers and students still pursuing the secrets of analog design.
Since the start of his in electrical engineering career in 1961, Bob fueled many key developments in the semiconductor industry. His expertise and reputation grew steadily, marked with the milestones of launching the industry's first online webcast for analog design engineers called the "Analog by Design Show," authoring a popular monthly column in Electronic Design titled "Pease Porridge" and much more. Over a career that spanned 33 years, Bob amassed 21 patents and designed more than 20 integrated circuits, including ICs that made their way to Mt. Everest and the moon.
In honor of his birthday today, please join us in sharing his impactful words of wisdom, personal memories or photos, videos or other work of this analog giant.
I've watched many times the "Analog by Design Show" in my graduation. Learn so much with Bob Pease.
When I finally started working on R&D (it took me a bit of fighting and working on testing positions to achieve that), one of the first books I bought was "Troubleshooting Analog Circuits (EDN Series for Design Engineers)" from Bob. I only saw him once live... an unforgettable experience.
