I officially have a degree now (not literally because there’s still some time in my convocation), but the effort and struggle is over. However I realize that the hard part has just begun. I remember a senior addressing our graduating batch on the recently organised “high tea” during the last days of college. He made us all aware about a very true fact that the path we traveled till now was a very well defined path and something that almost everyone follows. School and then college.

We gotta explore and follow our true passions. And that’s not very easy, and at times it’s so damn hard.   Continue reading

Future of Transistors and Microprocessors

“In 1958, Jack Kilby built the first integrated circuit flip-flop with two transistors at Texas Instruments. In 2008, Intel’s Itanium microprocessor contained more than 2 billion transistors and a 16 Gb Flash memory contained more than 4 billion transistors. This corresponds to a compound annual growth rate of 53% over 50 years. No other technology in history has sustained such a high growth rate lasting for so long.”
