Hans Camenzind | Cypress Semiconductor
If you have ever used a 555 timer you have Hans Camerenzind to thank. I have just heard of his death. The 555 timer had so much impact on the industry that one of the first things I did with a PSoC was to use it to simulate a 555 timer. (I figured that since a 555 timer could be used to build anything, if PSoC could successfully simulate a 555 timer then a PSoC could be used to build anything.) Hans loved is work, his family, and his hobbies and by any measure had lead a full happy life.
Good bye Hans, you will be missed!
A private family service will be held on August 17th. A remembrance of Hans life will be held at 2 pm on September 9th, in the Shoup Park Garden House in Los Altos. Friends and colleagues are welcome. In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer donations in Hans memory to the Computer History Museum. To RSVP and for information on donations, please see camenzind.org/hans/.
