<p><span style=We often take for granted that amplifiers can handle any input signal voltage ranging from microvolts to beyond the power supplies, operate on almost any voltage, and output a signal that can drive the following stage.

It turned out that the weather was so hot that all the signals had burned out, so that train had to stop each time and wait until they had clearance from further down the line. The end result was that our 45 minute journey took us nearly 8 hours.

Under Syrus' leadership, Burr-Brown became one of the fastest growing, high-performing analog companies in the world,” Lu said. He is now combining that experience with TI's extensive product portfolio and large customer support network to build the industry's broadest range of data converters, power management devices, and amplifiers.”

TI is expected to introduce about 350 new catalog analog products this year, Lu said, and catalog analog design wins are expected to more than triple from 1999.

Under Madavi's leadership, Burr-Brown grew revenue from $135 million in 1993, to about $430 million this year.

Congratulations to all of the folks at SiliconBlue Technologies – creators of ultra-low-power FPGAs that they call Custom Mobile Devices (CMDs) – because I just heard that they have been awarded the ISO 9001:2008 registration (Certificate No: US004204-1) for their quality management system for the design and manufacture of their mobileFPGA devices.

ISO9001 certification focuses on quality management ensuring that a company’s products are designed, documented and implemented according to the nationally mandated ISO 9001:2008 standards. Some of the criteria for ISO9001 certification requires that the company be a customer-focused organization, have a system approach to management, provide continual improvement, have mutually beneficial supplier relationships, and more.

 The ISO 9001:2008 certification is an important statement proving our commitment to quality on all levels,” said Tom Chan, SiliconBlue’s VP of Quality. By meeting the rigorous third-party ISO 9001:2008 certification process, we demonstrated that we meet our customers' quality requirements, applied all relevant regulatory requirements, enhanced customer satisfaction and ensured continuous improvements in line with these objectives.”

I’ve been through this in another company – I know how much work it takes – and I also understand how important it is to follow this sort of process so as to improve and maintain quality and suchlike … I also know people who devote their lives to this sort of thing…

…it’s just that – for myself – I find that wading through the ISO documentation and doing everything it takes to achieve certification makes my brains leak out of my ears and brings me to my knees with boredom. So all credit to the folks at Silicon Blue – especially the poor souls who have been tasked with making it all happen 🙂

As recounted by David Ashton

In the 80’s when I was working in Harare in Zimbabwe for SITA, the airlines communications network, I had a friend, Moshe, an Israeli, who was working in the SITA office in Lagos, Nigeria.    SITA staff were considered as airline staff for travel purposes and usually got free tickets on business trips, sometimes on personal ones as well.  In addition, the fact that the tickets were free meant that you could travel on flights that fare paying passengers could not use.  For example, British Airways at one time had a flight that came from London to Harare, offloaded some passengers there early in the morning, and went on to Cape Town in South Africa where it deposited the remainder of the passengers.  In the evening of the same day it flew back the same route.  Fare paying passengers had to use the services of either Air Zimbabwe or South African Airways to travel between Harare and Cape Town, as they had Traffic Rights” and British Airways did not.  But on a free staff ticket, I once went down to Cape Town one morning on British Airways and had a barbeque with a friend of mine, and flew back in the evening.  Usually you would have to route via Johannesburg and you couldn’t do it as a day trip.

Moshe had similar tricks.  The now-defunct British Caledonian Airways had a flight that came from London to Lagos via Kano, a city in the north of Nigeria, and Moshe was able to travel on the Lagos-Kano sector of their flights – which meant a great saving of time, as flights to and from Kano were not otherwise very frequent.

…and what I thought was… why is it that numbers hold so much sway over us? Take the fact that, according to estimates by the United Nations, this year (2011) the population of the Earth passed 7 billion. I find this to be absolutely amazing… and absolutely terrifying.
