A lot of Engineering I've seen consists of a good knowledge of National Semiconductors application notes! :D

And God bless Pease, Widlar and others like them for that! :)

I've been mucking about looking at all these IC's and microcontrollers and I'm kind of shocked to find that they give examples and all the information you'd ever need to use it in the circuit.. it feels like they're handing you the work on a silver platter... I mean... with these examples and instructions you can ,with some effort, create any circuit you want if you know how to apply your theory. Is this what Engineering is like? I've just started to look at manuals and the like for all the IC's I'm looking at.

This is amazing.. LOVE IT!!
