IMHO a www-page with (weekly?) digest of links to this forum would
be a good compromise. Employers could post to the "board" and the
digest would direct people to new postings.

[Speaking for Philips]
Last week we had a meeting of the corporate SI&EMC community.
The main emphasis is that Philips' primary tool for limiting
SI & EMC problems is edge-rate control; our standard libraries
have 5000, 10000, and 20000-ps edge time parts.

[Speaking for DCS]
... which causes quite a bit of trouble when my customers are
exclusively interested in system cycle times under 3000 ps.
My job is solving my customers' problems, and the solution
MUST begin with them.

[Speaking for the semi manufacturers]
[Yeah, right, Intel is gonna let me speak for THEM???]
It's a supply-and-demand problem. We *know* we have customers
who will pay for let-it-all-hang-out speed. They get taken
care of. If there's a demand (as in pounds, francs, Deutschmarks,
lira, guilders, etc.) then we'll be more than happy to fill it.
Money talks, and if you don't ask you won't receive.
