Rob, Dr. Ts vision is spot on.  The electronics industry undergoes constant change.  Another vendor who has done a great job is ARM.

Thanks for writing this, Rob. Dr. T's speech was one of the highlights of that highlight-filled evening.

Thanks Ann. I agree about Dr. T.'s speech. I particularly liked how he tied the Golden Mousetraps into our proximity to Disneyland.

Dr. T has been, and continues to be, a visionary in test and embedded design. I'm betting that NI's efforts in the embedded world will have the same impact that its earlier technologies had in test.

Charles,

I agree. He is quite a visionary in the world of virtual instrumentation and embedded systems. He's also engineering education advocate as the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and NXT products are powered by NI's Labview software.

naperlou,

As you maybe aware, the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 controller has a TI ARM based processor (am1808) along with National Instruments Labview. Dr. T has taken not only the electronics industry to new heights but engineering education as well. These two powerful hardware and software components for LEGO's new controller shows his commitment to developing the next generation of engineers and scientists.

ARM has involved itself as a source of all things microcontroller and microprocessor based on its constant updating of hardware/software standards. Just like Dr. T, ARM has it's eye on the future by developing today's best practices, tools, and standards for microcontroller and microprocessor tehcnologies of the future.
