My wife has English and physics degrees. So, the real question is...i or j? :-)

No, I tried that once, and it was a disaster. My second wife and love of my life is a RN, CCM, LNC, etc., etc. (The medical profession is big on having numerous certifications and titles following their names.) Nurses don't "think things to death", as she puts it. They act decisively (thank goodness). While we engineers are still considering the best approach to a problem, the nurse has already fixed it. So, together, we make a great team.

I've always thought I'd like to marry the daughter of an engineer. She'd be used to the engineer quirks.

I would never do that! My wife is a saint and puts up with all my Type-A characteristics as well as my 'need' to over-analyze and fix every problem. We work amazingly well together on home projects and she never doubts that I can fix anything in the house (don't tell her I really can't - I've been milking this for years!) She also has come to understand the 'bond' between and engineer and his power tools. As I said - she is a saint and I thank the lord everyday that she consented to be with me these last 33 years.

I think only a non-engineer would ask this question. I think Engineers are typically not so conceited (vs. medicine, finance etc.. )

Inbreeding is an ironic expression that refers to a lack of diversity. Some even speculate a link between autism and autism-like conditions: http://spectrum.ieee.org/biomedical/diagnostics/engineers-and-autism . Ironic.

That's a great point but "inbreeding"? What are you reading? Anyway, I'm up there with Museum Curator guy in terms dissimilar professions: I married a dance major. Anyway, early on in marriage I recall her reaction when I brought home my new circular saw. She looked at me bug-eyed saying "Whaddya gunna do with THAT?!" To which I replied incredulously "What CAN'T be done with this?" Many home improvement projects later, she finally gets it. So that's a little taste of what it's like to be with an engineer. Me? Ha! No way. I couldn't stand being with someone like myself.

Well I did marry an engineer 27 years ago. That she was an engineer had nothing to do with the decision, other than the fact we met through a mutual classmate during our undergrad years. She pursued her engineering career for 10 years, and then quit to become a mom and later a school teacher. She has excelled at all three of these wonderful professions, and I am blessed to share my life with her.

Seems a lot like inbreeding, but who really decides who they are going to marry on such a basis, anyway? Just don't marry a stupid person. Nothing worse than stupid kids...

In a couple where one is an engineer and the other is not, there can sometimes be a peculiar level of cross-training. I'm an EE and my wife is an accountant, but I enjoy taking care of the finances, bills & investments and she enjoys fixing things :)

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,...
