I always enjoyed reading the columns of the late Bob Peases in EDN.
When the rest of the industry seemed to be nothing but digital, Bob was
a great way to get your head cleared of all of the concentration on
tricks with ones and zeroes.
More than anything, when he wrote about analog circuits, it was more
than just a twist on some binary algorithm; he made you think a bit
about circuit design.
I miss him and his floobydust.
