This is BRILLIANT -- I'm laughing out loud (I loved the "Close the door" bit close to the beginning...

Of course all the Supermarionation was big down under. A comedy show sent up the thunderbirds in it. Of course the great YouTube provider has a link to it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC4frcXimz4

I loved UFO! I even watched the series more than once in rerun. I loved those British babes - totally hot and unquestionably competent! It was interesting when the 1980s actually came.... I never got into Space 1999. It was just too lame.

I'm planning a future column on programs like Space 1999... Can you think of any others of this ilk?

Reg Hill, Desmond Saunders and the Andersons also went on to produce the live-action series U.F.O. and Space:1999.

I must disagree; the miniature work in the Supermarionation series is still mind-bogglingly good, and puts most CGI to shame.

Nope, I leave FPGAs to others :-) I'm an RF/microwave/EM/MMIC/antenna type (although I confess to some embedded stuff, to poke bits into the RF stuff...) I do Planet Analog, though!

I must admit that I had forgotten about the gnome :-) Have you joined www.AllProgrammablePlanet.com yet?

If there were ever any doubts...the garden gnome's sign saying, "GO!" removed any and all :-)

I've seen all the early Wallace and Gromits -- I LOVE that Thunderbirds take-off scene of which you speak -- Max

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,...
