Back in the early 80s, EET had a contest giving away a couple of the brand new Macs. I entered and won a Mac. Frank called me and we talked for a bit - what a Mensch. My 9 year old son dominated and squeezed the stuffings oughta that little box. As a family we've had a lot of Macs. My son, after 7 years at Microsoft, took a position as Graphics lead for the Family and Church History department of the LDS Church. He and his wife both "drive" Macs. Tothe Burge Family - Thank you so much. God bless Mike Blood

I can't say I was actually "mentored" by Frank, but his wit, intelligence, charm and downright authenticity has inspired me for more than 35 years. I learned a lot about life and integrity from Frank Burge. I am deeply saddened by the passing of such a wonderful human. I have a million Frank Burge stories. Here's just one: On my first day at Regis McKenna in 1976, Frank walked into my cubicle and dropped a large box on my desk. It contained binders, papers, magazines (copies of EE Times I'm sure), creative briefs and media schedules. He said, "Here's the Intel account. I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow. Let me know if you have any questions." I learned that Frank's filing system consisted of two such boxes. When one gets full, it goes into the trunk of his Volvo, and he starts a new one. When that one gets full, he puts it in the trunk, empties the first and uses it to start over. He was a man of unprecedented honesty, wit, insight and authenticity. He set an example that inspired me, as I know he has so many others, over all these many years. So long my dear friend. Jack Ramsey

Thank you for this tribute to our dear uncle Frank. All your memories of Frank, really helps the younger generation in the family know how he has impacted so many in the industry. Frank was my husbands uncle, and he requested that we sing Amazing Grace for his memorial. Here's the vid i'd like to share with all of you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekk7QUeL5cA&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Thanks, Brian. Frank's column "About adoption" appeared on June 24, 1996 (I wrote to him in 2003) and ended with his sage advice: "There are children out there waiting to be adopted, waiting to be hugged and loved. Barbara and I recommend it."

Frank was a sweet man, a gentleman, a good editor and a great writer-- We worked together at EE Times for a year, after I left Electronic News in 1987-- My guess he, or Gerry Leeds wanted to learn the recipe for EN's secret sauce-- in 1988 Frank left Gerry/EET and went to Boston to work for Cahners/Electronic Business-- Since i am no longer close to the industry-- who has picked up Frank's pen and continued to make the contribution or have the impact of Frank Burge--or are those days gone forever-- Zach Dicker-- Former owner/Publisher Electronic News

Bob, what a great story. Congratulations to your son from a guy who wished he'd stuck it out to Eagle status! That is a fantastic accomplishment.

Frank wrote about adoption maybe a dozen or more years ago when my wife & I were adopting our son. I too wrote to thank him for sharing what he & Barbara went through and how glad they were to have adopted their 3 kids. He wrote back with more encouraging words, and if memory serves, he again said "Life is beautiful indeed." Sunday my son will become an Eagle Scout, and in a small way I will again be grateful to Frank.

If--and it was rare--we ever skipped a Burge column in a given week you can bet we heard about it... it was almost like pitchforks at the gate!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

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,...
