Pick Your Favorite Contributor; Winner Gets $5,000!

Most of the readers to Planet Analog are familiar with the work of Jim Williams. Jim was one of the smartest guys around. He did a ton of design applications engineering work for Linear Technology. He was a prolific writer and cranked out hundreds of articles and app-notes. These were published by Linear Technology, by EDN Magazine, and in his books.

We in the engineering community have been wondering who might step up and help fill the void left upon his passing. To that end, my associates over at EDN Online are accepting suggestions to find someone worthy of winning the Jim Williams Memorial Contributor of the Year Award.

Here is a blog that gives a bit more background information on Jim and the award. We would like to know your thoughts on people who should be considered. Post names below in the comments section or go to the blog cited above and post suggestions there.

We are sad that Jim is no longer with us, but perhaps we will find some joy in the attempt to find the next contributor to the engineering community.

    Again, I really appreciate the compliment. I do enjoy all the aspects of design work, from the sitting at a bench prototyping circuits thru the work as an apps engineer and now this job where I can share some of that knowledge with others. Not a bad career.

    So I 'm flattered. But likely ineligible.
