TitleHulme patent notebook (#1016)
Biographical NotesJohn Hulme received a B.S.E.E. from the University of Utah, and an M.S.E.E. from the University of Southern California. He managed the Microelectronics (integrated circuits) section of Fairchild’s Applications Department under Robert Schultz in Mountain View from circa 1963 through the 1970s. Circa 1963 his responsibilities included new product circuit design and system applications. In this role he hired Robert Widlar to work on linear (analog) IC design over the objections of managers responsible for that product category in the R&D group. Widlar went on to be one of Fairchild’s most productive design engineers and created some of the industry’s first high-volume standard linear ICs. Hulme later worked for Hewlett-Packard, Siliconix, and Adaptec.
