Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
That's correct: according to me the collaboration between application engineer and sales people has to be profitable for both of these two roles. The application engineer can put in evidence the strengths and weaknesses of a product. The sales people can put in evidence the characteristics of the product, that may match the customer requirements. Comparing the data it is possible to define a roadmap for further products.

Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
Applilcation engineer 's job skill might be mixed with sales engineer who presents the product to customer in a very attractive way. Application engineer might collaborate with sales engineer to reach the goal.

Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
", I think many engineers doesn't like to socialize especially with engineers from other companies which are their competitors. They are wary of the fact that they might share some IP details unknowingly."

@SachinEE: Why can't we look at it from a positive perspective and see how socializing can help engineers groom themselves and get to know about the latest technology and latest innovation that's happening in other companies. Socializing can easily lead to that.

Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
The more you interact with people and the more diverse your social gatherings are, the more you tend to become social. And that applies to everyone regardless of whether they're engineer or marketeers.

@tzubair, I think many engineers doesn't like to socialize especially with engineers from other companies which are their competitors. They are wary of the fact that they might share some IP details unknowingly.

Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
However, I'd say that most I've encountered prefer not to spend their time in front of customers, but instead focused on the task at hand

@jonharris0, I agree with your opinion. I think its wrong to say that all engineers are introverts. Most of the engineers are hardworking and are more worried about their work and hence they seem engrossed in their work.

Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
Wow, what an interesting dialogue here.  It is really a stereotype to say that engineers are all introverts.  However, I'd say that most I've encountered prefer not to spend their time in front of customers, but instead focused on the task at hand - their design.  I'd also say that marketing is a good place for an extroverted engineer, if one has sales ability and understands market trends, pricing, strategy, etc...for the rest of us who like to remain a little more technical and less focused on dollars and cents there is application engineering.  I am a bit biased to this role as it is obviously my favorite role. :-)

Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
Apart from introvert, i guess most of the markeeters are guided to chat on point to point business topic rather getting involved in someone personal discussion.

Re: App engineer is more than an engineer
"Working with customers around the world and with English as the second language, it takes a special quality to be able to relate to anyone - which involves getting to know a personality and conforming with them."

@RedDerek: I think more than anything else, that's what makes a difference in a person's personality. The more you interact with people and the more diverse your social gatherings are, the more you tend to become social. And that applies to everyone regardless of whether they're engineer or marketeers. I have seen some of the marketeers who happen to be very introverted because they're mostly confined to their own workplaces.

RE: App engineer is more than an engineer.
"Most engineers tend to work all day take few short breaks and in the evening leave for their homes. Everyday it's always same as the past days"

@yalanand: I think that's more of a stereotype than anything else. Engineers are also human beings just like the rest of the people and I think they enjoy their lives equally well compared to other people of their age - be it whatever domain those people belong to. From what I have seen, many of my engineer friends have regular hangouts and have pretty colorful lives full of energy.

More Blogs from Jonathan Harris
We begin this series of blogs by taking a look at ADIsimADC, which is a quite relevant design tool for Jonathan Harris, an applications engineer in ADI's high-speed ADC group.
In this blog we’ll take this one step further and look at driving the ADC power supplies directly from a DC/DC converter.
Previously in this blog series we looked at using a DC/DC converter (switching regulator) in combination with an LDO to drive the power supply inputs to an ADC. What we found was that using the DC/DC converter to step down the input voltage for the LDO was a much more efficient way to drive the power supply inputs to an ADC.
We look at using a DC/DC converter along with an LDO to drive the ADC power supply inputs.
I thought it would be good to continue looking at the example I gave in my last blog where we looked using fewer LDOs and combining power supply rails on an ADC while maintaining isolation with ferrite beads.
