Steve calls out power integrity as one of the next great test challenges. Agree? Disagree? Have another challenge in mind?

Read anything or all things as per your interest. But you should start putting an effort to read.

@caleb There's a raft of great engineering pranks that have been published on EETimes, like this one where engineers get back at a marketing manager

That prank is fantastic! I wonder if there is something I could smear on a circuit that would puff when power is applied without doing any damage?

Couldn't agree more about the smart people comment. I married an MIT PhD, and it has enriched my life beyond belief. I only hope that I've reciprocated in other ways!

Steve says, "Find smart people and make them your friends." Excellent advice. I started finding smart people in college, and am fortunate enough to keep finding them throughout my life.

"Reading for few hours a day is very essential."

Reading what? Technical books, articles, blogs? Reading tweets? Reading novels?

Wow!  Now he is so right with this statement:  "How fast technology evolves, and how slowly engineers adapt to new techniques, methods, and equipment."   And work hard.  Very good advice.

It is nice to read so good post after long hiatus. Thanks for effort. Reading for few hours a day is very essential. This is the difference between egineer guru and cursory engineer.

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 todayís commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
