Re: "Sign" of the times
All good points Vince---I totally agree---the quality of many umpires and Referees are not what it used to be----but inevitably they will make human errors000that's part of the game, but inconsistencies in their calls and judgement is just plain bad practice---these guys/gals do not belong in a judging position

"Sign" of the times
Electronics-wise, I agree. On the other hand, the umpires could be at least more uniform in their calling of balls and strikes. And I especially do not take kindly to the umpires modifying their own personal ball-and-strike zones on a night-to-night basis. The second element has to do with human errors and otherwise. I was glad to see Don Larsen pitch his perfect game in the '56 World Series, but that last pitch to Dale Mitchell was quite a bit outside, one reason you rarely can get a hold of the film today that shows the camera's overhead view. Then three or four years ago, the first base ump had a "senior moment" in robbing a pitcher of a perfect game. Football is another story. The rules of the game have been so changed especially since the 1980s to accent the offensive/passing game at the expense of the defense, that we're not even talking about the same game anymore. Thus establishing "new records" has no meaning. The game in many ways has become unwatchable. As has pro basketball (three, four, and sometimes five steps to the hoop before the ball hits the floor).

I agree. Just because something CAN be done with electronics does not mean that it SHOULD be done. Sports fans come to stadiums to watch human events, not nerd contests.

I have received an invitation by ROHM to a Paddock Tour which will be held at the venue of Formula E in their Brooklyn, New York race on July 12. This is part of the eventís worldwide racing tour.
High voltage, high speed with high slew rate with low noise are not all easy parameters to achieve in a single amplifier
Todayís circuit designers usually will need to design with analog circuitry on their boards, even if the core circuitry is Processor-based or a power supply design, MEMS/sensor or such. The
Hansler told me that there is one extended-length flex cable that powers the Roverís mast.
There are cases where a well-characterized source of noise with no other signal is entirely the desired output.
