I think that is the case for many people. It seems like no big deal but it is. Ultimately we are all more comfortable with what we really know.

Realize that anything mechanical once one gets to the sub-atomic level is mostly empty space, and the color of an object is the response to light to the object's electromagnetic fields that help old the electrons in place with the nucleus -- it is what in part gives all these different properties like conductivity and dielectric constant and modulus of elastisity, and tensile strength in part to materials

This article totally speaks to me. I seem to manage some level of competence with MCU hardware, software, schematic design and layout. My head does a pretty good job of envisioning what the mechanical components should look like and how they should operate. But, when it comes time to build mechanical things, I tend to struggle. It seems like it shouldn't be that big of a deal, but it is.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
