Re: Off-topic, but I wanted to post my employment status..
Thanks for the well-wishing, Aubrey.  Doing fine, with a pending offer, a phone interview in about half an hour, and an in-person interview at a 3rd company in 2 days.


BTW, Steve, the links I received in my email saying somebody had responded to my posts didn't work; I received this error message "No DSN found for ads_pacms"  The Planet Analog all signal no noise banner came up as did the blog name, e.g. Amplifier RF: Think Before You Choose!, but the page was blank except for the error message.  At first I thought it was because I was using my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S5), but the same thing happened from my home laptop computer, connected through cable modem.  Weird!

Off-topic, but I wanted to post my employment status..
Hi, Steve.

Just so that you and the others on Planet Analog know, I am no longer working for Broadcom Ltd.  They laid me off just before Thanksgiving with a very generous severance package, and I have several good opportunities for my next stint.  I may end up at Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems in Fullerton, CA doing tactical radios or at L3 Photonics in Carlsbad, CA doing some other stuff I wouldn't be allowed to talk about.  Meanwhile, I'm getting some extra family time in, doing some work around the house, and learning Altium CircuitMaker, which I may use to do some consulting over the holidays.  Trying to work around kids' school schedules to get to CES and RWW.  If at all possible, I'll get up to the Analog Afficionados dinner in February.  Wish me luck in my next adventure!
