Max, are you saying you need calibrated waistband or scale? If it's not traceable to a national standard, can you trust measurements taken with it?

I cut down on the bagels ot 1/2 (sliced) bagel a week. But, I'm not sure Max can cut down on the bacon.

@Max..."Now I'm wearing my sad face..."

"There, there!
I didn't really mean it;
Here's milk for his porringer
And bacon for his bread."

(1) I missed Question 6.  I answered 4, but the correct answer was D.

(B) Oh, never mind.

I have quizzes in our backoffice system that will post on the next three Fridays.

Feel free to submit your own multiple-choice questions. Please keep them focused on electrical engineering preferably test & measrurement. We'll excuse Max, for he knows not what he says :-)

Traceable Calibration

Traceable calibration needs to be done before the FIRST significant measurement is attempted. Otherwise you have little assurance of a way to reproduce results. Recommended reading is Traceable Temperatures, 2d Ed by Nicholas & White (Wiley 2001). It's much more about measurement reliability than it is about temperature measurement.

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,...
