WORLDS FAMOUS ENGINEERS

Foreigners inventions, Filipino mind and Mapuan pride

LEONARDO DA VINCI
Military Engineer: Worked for the Duke of Milan (1482) and for Cesare Borgia (1502-1503) Before the Industrial Revolution, he was able to do sketches of designs of flying machines and instruments for war, as well as practical theories and concepts in engineering, mathematics, science, etc.

CONTRIBUTIONS:
War instruments (weapons, military tanks, submarines, catapults) , flying machines (ornithopters) Geometrical design for arc ruptures, concept of line thrust, analysis of strength of materials Canals (Hydraulics) and Fortress

CATAPULTS

ORNITHOPTERS AND CURRENT AIRCRAFT

GEOMETRICAL ARC RUPTURES

JERRY YANG
Electrical Engineer from Stanford University Co-created (with David Filo) an Internet Website called Jerry and Davids Guide to the World Wide Web Which is now currently named Yahoo!

WILLIAM TORRES
Grandfather of Philippine Internet Founder of Mosaic Communications (MozCom) Took BS ME in Mapua Institute of Technology and studied Mathematics and Statistics at University of the Philippines, and obtained his Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Science in Computer Sciences from University of Wisconsin.

DIOSDADO DADO BANATAO


Co-founded Mostron (PC Motherboards), Chips and Technologies (PC Chip Sets, eventually acquired by Intell) and S3 Graphics/SonicBLUE (originally 2D graphics chips) Studied in Ateneo de Tuguegarao, graduated cum laude in Mapua Institute of Technology as an Electrical Engineer and took Masters in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University Discovery of 10-Mbit Ethernet CMOS with silicon coupler data-link control and transreceiver chip

First single-chip, 16-bit microprocessor-based calculator (while at Commodore in 1976. Note: The first single-chip 16-bit microprocessor was the 1976 TMS 9900 by Texas Instruments. Texas Instruments also came up with the first pocket calculator in 1972. (Was Commodore the first to come up with the single-chip 16-bit calculator?) First 10-Mbit Ethernet CMOS with silicon coupler data-link control and transreceiver chip; got 3Com into the Ethernet PC add-in card business (while at Seeq in early 1980s) First system logic chip set for the PC-XT and the PC-AT (while at Mostron in 1984 and Chips and Technologies in 1985) First enhanced graphics adapter chip set (while at Chips and Technologies in 1985) Pioneered local bus concept for PC (while at S3 in 1989) First Windows Graphics accelerator chip (while at S3 in 1990)
