In many ways, Jim’s major contribution was in making complex analog circuits understandable to the engineering community. He had the rare ability to develop a complicated circuit for one-time use, and then provide enough background for general use, writing it up so that engineers could easily understand. Over the years, Jim was a highly prolific and accomplished writer, authoring over 350 publications related to analog circuit design, including dozens of Linear Technology application notes and articles for EDN magazine. He edited and contributed his writings to two books on analog design in the 1990s and his forthcoming book, Analog Circuit Design: A Tutorial Guide to Applications and Solutions, edited with Linear Technology’s Bob Dobkin will be published this summer by Elsevier/Newnes Publishing .Jim Williams was named Innovator of the Year by EDN magazine in 1992 and elected to Electronic Design Hall of Fame in 2002. His outside interests spanned sports cars, collecting antique scientific instruments, art, and restoring (and using) old Tektronix oscilloscopes.
