Hall of Fame 2015
John M. Eubanks
John M. Eubanks received his BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering from NC State in 1956 and 1962. In 1966 Eubanks, and Robert Bedingfield, started Computer Labs, a company in Greensboro, NC. Bedingfield handled the business end of the company and Eubanks lead the product development. Computer Labs developed and sold analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters and related items. The analog-to-digital converter that was offered was the fastest available anywhere at that time. The company was very successful. In 1978 Analog Devices bought Computer Labs. For a time the company was operated as Computer Labs Division of Analog Devices. Eventually it became Analog Devices – Greensboro Division. This company is still in operation today and has about 300 employees.
Since leaving Computer Labs, Eubanks spent much of his time teaching math at Nash Community College where he received the outstanding teacher award for 2004. He retired from teaching at age 80. He lived in Rocky Mount, NC until he passed away in December 2021.
