My hero!

Extremely aggressive ad (slightly censored), but I don’t think it was ever used. Identify the creator/designer (not the company).

Cracked by: shrik , Raghuvansh , jowens , Rogi and dineshk

Answer:
Bob widlar. Analog IC pioneer and drunk, worked for National Semiconductor.

Interestingly enough, TI (mentioned in the fine print in the ad) recently purchased NS. Ouch.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.

    It’s probably more correct to say, Regis McKenna; But, I suspect you’re looking for the geek-factor with Bob Widlar.
