{Grad Life} ∩ {Sleep} = ø

My research group just recently sent an IC out for fabrication… here are a few of the more interesting stats:

  • Size: ~2.5 x ~2.5 mm
  • Technology: 90 nm
  • Components: ~2.86 million transistors
  • Team: 2 lead designers, 1 pad designer, 1 undergrad, & 1 advisor
  • Sleep: 5 total hours between Wed. morning and Mon. afternoon

All I have to say is, thank goodness this is over… it’s been quite an experience, but I certainly don’t regret the fact that I’ll never be going through this again. 🙂
