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! :)
