Jeff Keyzer (@mightyohm) posted this up on Twitter and I had to share it here, because it’s really quite wonderful. Filmed at the Computer History Museum, which is currently featuring Williams’ desk as an exhibit, it’s a great testament to a guy who really lived and breathed analog electronics.
The above video is 80 minutes long — analog is a long game, after all — but for a nice summary, you can also watch the 8-minute exhibit video here.
BONUS: Still want more JW? Check out this great video ‘app note’ about minimizing switcher ripple in linear regulators. My favorite part is right after the 3’45” mark — what a difference 1.5″ of coax can make!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did — happy Friday!
