Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This was announced several months ago (March 2021) to allow our members ample time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.

National Semiconductor Lays off Bob Pease!


Recommended Posts

National Semiconductor recently laid off Bob Pease. He's been a National Semi guy for decades, so this is quite a surprise. It's like hearing the Vatican fired the Pope to cut costs.

Those of you in the electronics industry no doubt know who this eccentric industry icon is. To give you an idea of his engineering celebrity, he even has a wikipedia page. His EDN magazine column (Pease Porridge, Bob's Mailbox) is always a hoot and I hear he will continue with it. He invented/improved many of the popular analog IC's we use today (voltage regulators, OPAMP's, and more). http://www.national.com/news/item/0,1735,803,00.html

I sure hope they gave him a nice exit package. Good luck to you old friend! :)
