Tech Talk - The Bleeding Edge (Oracle India, Sun Microsystems BU)


Last week i was invited to a Tech Talk organized by Oracle India (Sun Microsystems BU). The title of the talk was "Tech Talk - The Bleeding Edge, Evade your challenges– A dive into critical issues affecting High-end bleeding edge Semiconductors designs and the development engineers face off". The speaker was Mr. Sridhar Vajapey, VP, Hardware Development (Sun Microsystems BU), Oracle Corporation Inc.

The talk was highly informative covering the aspects of Semiconductor process Technology and challenges affecting the lower technology nodes of 28nm. The speaker also provided some very good insight into Sparc processor development, thermal management in a data center and issues with recreating silicon failures. Mr. Sridhar captivated the audience with his detail oriented talk and also dedicated time for answering questions from the audience. What kept me wondering was, how a VP kept himself up to date with technical details, issues and facts of current technologies. By the way did you ever wonder what Cutting edge, Leading Edge and Bleeding edge refer to? Do you know what they really mean?
