I echo Sanjob Acharya's sentiments. Thank you Michael for sharing your discovery so that we can all think of creative, mathematically-based solutions to make our products better. I also think your mini bio at the end of the article is clever and witty. With nanotechnology advancing forward, low power requirements tightening, the future of electronics will yield phenomenal results...but then what? after everything is THAT microscopic?

@Michael Hughes, well written and nicely explained! Thanks for sharing your experience. Yes, sometimes we tend to ignore or overlook less important (apparently) specs. of the components in order to focus on the major features/ functionalities, which could cause a huge trouble in a crunchy situation

The photo transistors used as sensors are very critical. The optical behaviour to be studied carefully in the application under various lighting conditions. One more issue out of many photo transistors one may have poor leakage specification will lead to failure of detection and the system will behave erratically!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
