Yes we did my fiend. The STS story is a very interesting one I hope you help me document it to share with others. I love you Hank – without you STS would have never happened!
I joined National Instruments in 2010 as an experienced hire to help launch “Savage ATE”. We changed the world.
I (along with my company) was very fortunate to have been brought into the NI STS efforts early in the platform development. We had a mutual customer that was interested in evaluating the potential of the platform and it was the beginning of a relationship that continues to be rewarding on both a professional and personal level.
The entire STS team went to great lengths to ensure we could be successful and positioned to support future STS business opportunities. Ron allowed us access to multitudes of NI resources without question and Hank served as the ever patient mentor helping us to see the potential of STS.
In a business where everything is dictated by the next technical challenge, Hank managed to make it a very personal effort for me. We developed a friendship that continues to this day and I will always be appreciative for the opportunities that we continue to see as part of the STS .
The energy and enthusiasm of the STS team was contagious and allowed a small company to be directly vested in the NI success, which is pretty incredible in this industry.
Thanks for everything guys!
