I have known and worked with Robert (Rob) Baumann for over 9 years. Rob’s experience and technical guidance was an important contribution to what would eventually become a very successful product. From 2012 to 2017, Rob and I worked together in the same product line. Rob played an instrumental role in leading the establishment of radiation test capability in the organization. He was also responsible for standardizing the radiation reporting process, an endeavor which added an immeasurable amount of value to the release of the “whole” space product. Rob is a pleasure to work with, and has always been a team player in the truest sense and committed to the process of raising the talent level of the team around him. Rob’s reputation as an expert in the field of radiation effects was widely known both inside Texas Instruments as well as the semiconductor industry for his contributions to the reduction of soft error rates.
