These engineering and science tech-centric
jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends
and websites across the Internet. I check back occasionally for new fodder, but
it seems all the old content is reappearing all over (like this is). The humor is
light-hearted and clean and sometimes slightly assaultive to the easily-offended,
so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.
This advertisement by Mentor Graphics
strikes me both as humorous and extremely effective at getting their point across. The dog's blackness an glowing
yellow eyes, waiting to tear asunder the unwitting and unprepared dupe is a riot. This ad, and others of a similar
nature, have run in trade publications like
Design-for-Test Prepare for the worst if you're still using traditional DFT methodologies at 130nm and below.
Tests needed to detect all of the defects at these smaller geometries can increase test data volumes by 5X or
more, escalating test costs to ensure product quality. TestKompress®
is a proven embedded compression solution easily integrated into any standard design flow without disruption to
the core design. Its supports all fault models and pattern types needed to detect nanometer defects, and with up
to a 100X reduction in test data volume and test time, you get cost effective, high-quality tests with no
tradeoffs. Protect yourself from the perils of nanometer design. Register for a mini workshop at
