Drone followed up on our App note: Thermocouple measurement post:

Yes, this app note is written by the venerable Jim Williams who passed away last year. Mr. Williams was the author of many famous application notes at both National Semiconductor (now owned by Texas Instruments) and Linear Technology Corp. (LTC). There is a very nice site revisiting his work here:

LTC has a tribute here

LTC’s collection of his work is here

EDN’s collection of Jim’s articles

And of-course the Wikipedia page

These link probably belong in a post of their own…

    I hope he has got those lumps on his arm checked out.

      I don’t think that matters, now.

      Wow, Jim was an incredibly smart man. It would have been interesting, if not way over my head, to talk with him.
