Abraham I. Pressman



Who is Abraham I. Pressman?

Abraham I. Pressman was an American professional engineer. He was a nationally known power supply consultant and lecturer. His background ranged from a United States Army radar officer to over four decades as an analog-digital design engineer in industry. He held key design roles in a number of significant “firsts” in electronics over more than a half century: the first particle accelerator to achieve an energy over one billion volts, the first high-speed printer in the computer industry, the first spacecraft to take pictures of the moon’s surface, and two of the earliest textbooks on computer logic circuit design using transistors and switching power supply design, respectively. Pressman was the author of the first two editions of Switching Power Supply Design.

The following is a link to Abraham Pressman's eulogy which was written by his wife Anne Pressman and his sons Norman, Dan and Eric. Note that this copy was autographed by Herman Wouk.
