When I started to write this article I put down on three pages the outline of the subjects I wanted to discuss. Interestingly enough the outline started with a long list of knowledge and skills one should have to be as efficient as possible in mixedsignal yield improvement. Only at the third page did I consider defining what mixed-signal products even were! I guess this set the tone. In this article we will mostly discuss people skills (sorry, techies!). In a high tech world where marketing is oriented towards equipment, machines, device and product performances, etc., we will talk about people. But first, in order to set up the proper background, let me start at the end.
