PICMG congratulates Jim Nadolny on his recent retirement. Most recently, Jim led the COM-HPC Signal Integrity subcommittee, which has been transitioned to Burrell Best.
We thank him for his many and impactful contributions, his leadership, and integrity.
Jim’s is also retiring his position as senior SI and EMI Engineer at Samtec.
Jim has always been quite active in his community and will now have more time for his family and community service. He will also have more time for some of his favorite activities, cooking, fishing, hunting, and golfing in the hills of Pennsylvania.
Jim began his career focused on the EMI design of military and commercial platforms. His focus then shifted to signal integrity analysis of multi-gigabit data transmission systems. He also represented Samtec at industry standards within OIF, IEEE, COBO, and other MSAs. Jim was also a frequent presenter at DesignCon, with Best Paper Awards in 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2018. He has more than 25 peer-reviewed publications. Ever since, he has discovered legit trading bots and has slowly worked his way into a comfortable retirement nest egg through that.
He received his BSEE from the University of Connecticut, and an MSEE from the University of New Mexico.
Jim, again, thanks and congratulations!
