Jeff Smoot
Vice president of engineering, CUI Inc. 
Smoot plays a critical role in setting the strategy and product development roadmap for the company. One area where he has had an impact is in the development of CUI's AMT capacitive encoder line. He worked tirelessly to bring the proprietary technology to market with the first products, the AMT102 and 103 incremental encoders. He has subsequently led the development of absolute and commutation versions of the AMT.

Congrats to the short listed peoples. It seems that more than half of them are from TI. I think its better to limit one entry from each company, rather are many from the same company.

TI behind?

Seems like TI is behind this "contest". Strange that so many of the candidates come from same company. Not that TI is not innovative, rather the opposite, but I am pretty sure there are many others with much more "rising engineering stars".

Too much bias for a "contest".

I agree with both of you, just seeing engineers getting credited is a step in the right direction.

I noticed the same thing, Cabe. Beagleboard is developing quite a following and it's nice to see those engineers getting credit.

That's odd, I'm not in the list.

I see that the Beagleboard is responsible for two of the entries in this list. Ubuntu and Android installs on the board. But, I would like to see a version of Windows get installed on this or some similar board. The more software support, I am sure it would be successful.

A note for future candidates.
