That photo in his lab shows he was a typical electronics guy. May he rest in peace. I really haven't ever heard of him, but a loss to the industry is a loss to all of us.

I am sorry to hear that.

I liked his books, Art and Science of Analog Circuit Design etc, and his description of the Monkey circuit.

Condolences to his family.

Why spend money I don't have on things I don't need to impress people I don't like?
