    Any of you been to one of these? They are having one here in
    Clearwater on the sensors and analog signal chain. I was wondering
    on how they fare.

    I've been to a few over the last twenty years. They've been pretty
    useful, on average, and I've learned stuff that I hadn't known before.

    Good. I'm attending one on Wednesday and will take good notes
    and, maybe a schematic I have of a project I have with an AD7150; a
    capacitive sensor that hasn't been released yet but they are sending
    out samples. It would be nice to find out if it will do what I want
    it to do or can get it to do. It might just fit in with their AD7147
    CapTouch Programmable Controller for Capacitance Sensors demo and lab.

    I went to one in Phoenix about 18 years ago. A free lunch and lots of
    decent (AD) literature mad it worth my while. I learned a few new
    things (especially about some of their products -- obviously).
    Anymore, AD does a great job of keeping me up-to-date with their
    publications and samples program. Their support department is decent,
    too -- sometimes a little slow, but they always come up with the
    detailed answers I need.

    I found them to be the fastest responding support group there ever was
    in electronics. Since more than 20 years. And without fiefdoms or stupid
    turf area rules so guys in one continent kept supporting me while I
    happened to be in another.

    Many others in North America are pretty good as well but there I found
    the occasional dropping of the ball and not picking it back up. Europe,
    oh well, that's a whole 'nother matter. A very sad one, as is now
    reflected in the quarterly earnings of many companies there. If they
    can't make a profit in a good economy, how will they in a bad one?

    We had continental breakfast too. Bagels with cream cheese, OJ
    and other stuff. For lunch they had various sandwiches. The ham
    sandwich I had was packed with ham. The cookies were awesome
    especially the oatmeal raison. Salad was ok, but I'm not that much on
    salads. All catered by Panera Bread.


    and lots ofThe one I went to yesterday was very good. Got lots of
    literature on the products presented and some that weren't. Got this
    humongous book for free, about 2 1/4 inches thick, called Basic Linear
    Design. If that is the basic book, the advanced books should take up
    2 6' shelves.
    We got to do some labs with the EVAL-AD7147EBZ Cap Touch
    Controller and with the ADIS16255 Programmable Low Power Gyroscope.
    I wrote them for some info last night about 10:40 and I had a
    partial reply back this morning that they had sent at 5:36 A.M. I was
    impressed.
    I started a download of their AD7147EVAL software that goes with
    the EVAL-AD7147-1EBZ after that and then went to bed. I didn't want
    to stay up until after midnight waiting for it.
