's contributions
    • Lightning affects Greenhouse gases concentrations as well as its capability of damaging electrical/electronic systems, especially those in elevated structures like wind turbines or aircraft. Scientists at SAINT want to fully understand this atmospheric electrical phenomenon.

    • New ecosystem includes the AD9371 integrated wideband RF transceiver, enabling simple, versatile solutions for wireless infrastructure, aerospace and defense, and instrumentation applications.

    • NASA engineers have to define, create, test, and deploy software with ongoing refinements in the Orion Deep Space vehicle that will carry astronauts to Mars and back.

    • Hi Max, I have also interviewed Alice Bowman ("MOM"), she is an engineer like we are and so excited about the space program. See my interview on EDN

    • Hello Prabkhar, If I get to do a Part 2 then I definitely would add actual implementations and more design details. Thanks for the feedback

    • Hi Rich, I do appreciate your feedback Rich. I know that I tend to be a bit too relaxing in my presentations, but I need the constructive criticism because these topics can get too "dry" sometimes and I want to make these tutorials informative as well as interesting. Thanks, Steve
