Can our readers ladle out some delectable culinary puns or what?! I could have happily gone on reading them right up til Thanksgiving. Mull over our top five captions and then steam on up to the ballot to vote for your favorite.
And when you're done, sit back and give us a few suggestions for our November caption.
Our finalists are: SylvieBarak, jkdrum, Big Hig, Ehecatl, and elPresidente. See their culinary caption creations below...
A dash of this and a bit of that. Take it up a notch, plug it in to 24O and *BAM*! (jkdrum)
But don't answer yet. Simply move the analyzer's fan to the "blocked" position, and you've got a ready made cook surface. Now how much would you pay? (Big Hig)
Rapidly slice the signals, strain to avoid aliasing, simmer until it reduces and the analog spectrum analyzer will be converted to a digital spectrum analyzer. (Ehecatl)
Some musicians are following the OpAmp cookbook to the tee - they've diced the wafers and put them in a thin DIP, then chopped the inputs, sliced the bits, and mixed in the IF. They even turned the pot and knife switched. A byte was tried, after a hesitant nibble, and there was a rather flat response across the band even after trying SPICE. With reluctance, it LED to the conclusion that the potential of this recipe would really show with Lissa Juice. Figures! (elPresidente)
I agree. The last entry was "clever" (not so much funny). The previous 4 entries were not funny at all. My recommendation is to NOT give up your day job to be a comedian (unless you're an unemployed engineer....then it doesn't matter).
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.
