I have been in the semiconductor industry for more than 20 years. Most of those have been as a Field Applications Engineer (FAE) or FAE Manager. A large portion of my role is pre-sales technical marketing: convincing a customer to use the silicon or system-on-chip solutions with associated software to meet their design criteria. However, some of my time is spent answering technical questions on the products we provide. Sometimes the answers to those questions require extensive research and I aim to share with you those answers that are intersting and may be useful to others.
