My Substrate or Yours?

Fish Fry is getting down to bare metal. We’re talking the who, what, where, and how of multi-substrate technology and checking out why the tools of today may not be up to snuff for tomorrow’s 3D IC packaging. Also this week, we look at the challenges of 100G designs and investigate why Portland, Oregon was ranked the second nerdiest city in the United States.

I’ve got a Microchip TCHIP003 chipKIT™ Starter Pak – courtesy of Mouser and Microchip Technology to give away this week. You can enter to win one by posting a comment on this week’s Fish Fry page.

If you read my post Who Put the Silicon in Silicon Valley? then you know my conclusion: Let's go with Shockley. He invented the transistor, came here, hired a bunch of young PhDs, and sent them out (by accident, not design) to create the companies, that created the compa...
