@David: @MB you'll be extolling the virtues of bacon next :-)

How did that old American cowboy song go? Something like:

   {Deep voice} Bacon, bacon, bacon,

   {Higher voice} Bacon, bacon, bacon,

   {Higher again} Bacon, bacon, bacon... Raw-Hide!

I forget the rest...

@MeasurementBlues: In the winter, I wear sweat pants (two pairs). socks (two pairs) boots, and gloves. Oh and three sweatshirts. It gets cold here.

Wus!

What do you wear when you leave the house?

@MeasurementBlues: I've been hanging around Max too long.

You are just letting your "Inner Max" shine through -- go with the rush -- it will make a man of you, my son!

Every day is "Shorts" day

When I first moved to the USA in 1990, as you say, every day was shirt and tie and real trousers -- except for casual Fridays when you could get by without a tie (I think the wearing of jeans came later -- certainly no shorts).

At that time --24 years ago now -- I don't think anyone wore shorts in England (excepting very young kids) -- maybe at the beach -- I don't recall. I know my friends were surprised the first time I went back wearing shorts.

Now, like you, I work in my own office (I don't work from home -- I have the Pleasure Dome) -- in the summer I wear shorts and Hawaiian shirts and sandles (I go barefoot in the Plaesure Dome) -- in the winter I wear jeans and Hawaiian shirts and sneakers.

Life is good :-)

Working at home

The other nice thing about working at home is my short commute down one flight of stairs. I was reminded of that today as I headed to the Mathworks. I figured 20 minutes, allowed for 30, but it took 40. And, that was a reverse commute. The traffic heading into Boston was far worse.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
