I am proud to be an engineer. Yes, my wife has given me the cold stare when she finds out I am thinking about physics while staring at sunsets. I also admire the show and take photgraphs, but she can't understand that engineers are always doing multiple things at once.

Do you sometimes answer simple math questions in Octal or Hex? Do you often have MCUs on your kitchen counter mixed in with all of the other stuff people accumulate there? Rather than throwing out an old computer, do you feel compelled to scavenge it for any useable parts? When asked by a friend or family member what you did at work today, do you sometimes stop in the middle of the explanation because you've already lost them - and they don't notice that you stopped? When you have a WiFi or cell phone signal drop out, do you try to imagine the signal propagation first and complain second? When an electronic consumer product gets warm, does it bother you because you assume that to keep costs low, they used electrolytics without the proper thermal range?

You hang on to dead CFLs because you might someday have a use for the electronic components in them.

- Why can't computer engineers distinguish Christmas from Halloween? - Because dec(25) = oct(31)

Happened today: I was taking a walk with my wife past a pond, and explained the difference between algae and duckweed. She exclaimed, "I can't believe you knew that! You just know everything!"

you, at least once in your life, tried to calculate the optimum speed for running under rain, in order to keep yourself as dry as possible. user's manuals are often unnecessary. Trial and error method is commonly prefered right after unboxing a new gadget. you store beer only in the lower part of a refrigerator.

There are only 10 types of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

You are definitely an engineer if you laughed at this.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
