You've probably heard of the saying... April showers bring May flowers. In EngineerZone, did April questions bring timely solutions? Many of our forums suggest that they did.

Our support forums are blooming with questions and answers from the past month. This is in part because of a great team of ADI experts working together to successfully help customers get answers to their most important questions. A big thank you goes to the ADI employees below.

Member Shout-out

This month, I'd like to acknowledge another set of hardworking ADI employees that have been answering questions and providing solutions in EngineerZone.

Throughout the years, Anne has demonstrated that she is not only dedicated to providing excellent support as a Software Development Engineer, but she is a team player always working with other forum managers to help achieve a common goal. This recent question about LTspice involved multiple team members coming together to provide a timely solution within our two day SLA. 

 nominated by  for our Super User program, because of his swift responses without sacrificing quality on several forums, including the Design Tools and Calculators. In this recent question about the filter design tool provided a suggestion that led to a verified answer. As you can see from the thread, multiple ADI employees (shout-out to  and ) jumped on the opportunity to help provide timely support.

 was nominated as a Super User by  due to his excellent and timely solutions in the Video forum.
