Engineers often work behind the scenes, but Analog Devices (Norwood, MA) recently shined the spotlight on three of its best.
Senior engineers Susan Feindt, John Green, and Peter Hurrell were appointed Analog Devices fellows by company chairman and co-founder Ray Strata during Analog Devices' 2011 General Technical Conference, in March. The fellows serve as ambassadors for the company.
“The awarding of fellow appointments recognizes those who have attained the highest level of achievement in our technical community," Analog Devices chief technology officer Sam Fuller said in a press release. "Susan, John, and Peter embody the fellows selection criteria that Analog Devices established more than 30 years ago due to their conspicuous innovation, contribution to the company’s commercial success and willingness to serve as role models for their peers. The next generation of Analog Devices engineers will stand on the shoulders of leaders such as these.”
A bit about the winners:
Feindt pioneered the use of bonded wafer silicon-on-wafer substrates and full dielectric isolation on ADI’s complementary bipolar processes.
Green is know as the “father” of gyroscope innovations at Analog Devices, thanks to his innovations in differential, mechanical structures.
Hurrell holds 14 patents and has nine more pending in areas of data conversion technology, including successive-approximation register and delta-sigma.
