    Vladimir, thanks for posting this sad news, nice picture you found of Mr. Teer. Long time ago he was the head of Philips Research Labs in Eindhoven. So he was the boss of my boss of my boss. RIP.

  2. Very sad news for both engineers and musicians. BBD are one of the most sought IC for music devices. RIP Mr Teer.

  3. Would it be insensitive to say he'd kicked the bucket?

    (I say this with the greatest respect for a long life, fully lived.)
