Sir Clive invented pocket radios, pocket TVs and electronic watches as well as Britain's best selling home computer.

RIP Sir Clive.

Great link, jaycee!

Sinclair Radionics produced Class-D (PWM) amplifiers in kit or assembled form back in 1965.

And the first scientific pocket calculator with LED display, we all admired in the 70's. He was a genius.

RIP Sir Clive.

Thanks to Sir Clive, I built my first Spectrum 48K compatible computer in 1991, while I was student. It was named Cobra and was very popular along students.
On this machine I learned to code in Basic and enjoyed a plethora of games.

Do I spy a mil-spec EPROM there?

Yes. Used what we had at that time. :)

Sinclair: my first amplifier (Z30) and my first computer (ZX81).
Lots of memories. RIP Sir Clive.
