I'd love to hear others on the gaps between Silicon Valley and Hollywood and men and women in engineering.

Thanks for the interesting interview. How smart for her to say "In general the thing to watch for is where's the next bottleneck -- that's where innovation will be. Look for the stresses on systems..."

Its so amazing to see so many women entrepreneurs in US and clarity in their thoughts. I guess the society there in US gives equal opportunities to men and women, thats outstanding. They say if you want a progessive nation make sure your women are educated and given equal opportunity.

Coming to issues in music industry, its there everywhere, I would say US is far much better. Atleast you can sue a person and company if your songs are copied, here in India no one gives a second thought for piracy.

India is not far behind US in giving equal opportunities for women. That is why we see women on top in many top grade financial institutions and even engineering companies

The lack of women in engineering is a problem that we haven't solved in the past 30 years -- when I was studying for my mechanical engineering degree. Back then, the percent of women graduating with engineering degrees was about 15% and that stat remains the same today. Moreover, women (like me I suppose) tend to drop out of engineering early in their careers more frequently than their male counterparts. For the females who have the chops to do engineering, I think many of them take those skills and study biology, or medicine -- perhaps because these fields are more obviously people oriented.

Watch for convergence

I really liked her advice to watch where industries are converging and trace back the implications of that convergence to a novel next-gen system or chip design.

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,...
