Why did we pick the name "Cheshire"?

No, we are not from England at all.

When we founded Cheshire Engineering in 1982, there were hundreds of companies that named themselves partly with a "micro", "soft", or "tech" in their name; most of those have disappeared over the years. Choosing to be more creative and a bit whimsical, one of the founders suggested a name from a favorite character in Lewis Carroll's stories.

What is that symbol in the logo?

Our logo draws on the many interesting projects that straddle the border between the real world and the computer, or the interface between analog and digital. The symbol used is closest to the schematic symbol for an opamp, but could stand for any of several of the key electronic components in the path from a real phenomenon to a digital measurement. The random field of ones and zeros behind it of course stands for digital data.
