PC’s Electronic Components Blog named top resource for electrical engineers! ;)

February 14, 2013

Today, Feb. 14th, has turned out to be a great day for me! I received an email early morning, which stated: PC’s Electronic Components Blog is featured on the list of 100 Top Resources for Electrical Engineers that we published on ElectricalEngineeringSchools.org, USA!

Wow! This happens to be my sixth world title in a row!! The picture of the award badge is given alongside!!!

I am so very happy that my blog on electronic components has bagged an award! I had started my career writing about electronic components for Asian Sources Media, now Global Sources‌, in Hong Kong.

Back in those days – 1994-1995, there used to be some presence of electronic components made by local manufacturers, especially in Naraina Industrial Area, New Delhi. I still remember, very clearly, doing the rounds of Naraina, along with my friend, Dolly! Back then, most of the components were made for colour TV sets, and a few makers had just started making components for cellular phones.

Today, there are big-sized, very large representatives of electronic components in India.

I recall one of my earlier stories was on DIP switches. There used to be slide and rocker types of DIP switches. I wonder whether they are still used today! Maybe, they are, in some electronic devices! I also recall there used to be some demand for TV antennae at that time, as well as for cell phone antennae! How time has flown by since!!

May I take this opportunity and offer sincere thanks to all of my readers, well wishers, friends and acquaintances I have made over the years for their continuous love and support! Without you, no award is ever possible! 😉

I’d like to conclude by taking the names of two gentlemen, who have spurred me on to write blogs on components, electronics and semiconductors, as well as telecom. They happen to be Alfred Cheng. country manager, Hong Kong, Global Sources, and Spenser Au, former publisher, CTG and now, CEO, Global Sources, Hong Kong, who made me work on the Telecom specs tables.

A word is also due for Raj Gopinath, my editor-in-chief at Asian Sources, and Daniel Tam, who replaced Spenser, back in 1999, as publisher of CTG. Special mention needs to be made of Claudius Chan, who I consider as a ‘guru’ of electronic components. Whatever I am today is largely due to my time spent at Global Sources! Thanks a lot, my dear friends!!

Alfred just sent me a mail saying: Hi Pradeep, How many more prizes would you like to win, my friend? I wish I could write as good as, maybe 50 percent as good as you do since we used to work together in the electronics industry. 🙂 Thanks a lot, my friend!

    Here’s an email from Alfred! 😉 Thanks again! 😉

    Hi Pradeep,

    Congratulations again! Yes, Spenser gave us lots of latitude to do what we would do best for making our editorial one of the best in the industry.

    You, Raj and other members in editorial contributed a lot back in the CTG era. I enjoyed working with you guys as I could reinforce what I learned from the market by interacting with all professional editors.

    I keep doing that until now, my friend.

    Best wishes,

    Alfred Cheng
    Chief Representative, Hong Kong, Global Sources.

    An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who has been doing a little homework on this.

    And he actually ordered me lunch due to the fact that I found it for him… LOL. So, allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this.
