This is why ECC is used to protect memory and data busses. At least on the good stuff
Silicon-on-sapphire is the main way to implement silicon-on-insulator, which is more protective of radiation bit flips and less likely to latch-up. But since these have historically been required only for space satellites, they have been horribly expensive. Imagine running an entire IC fabrication just to make a few chips. As there are more applications for rad-hard chips, the price could fall.
Speaking out of curiosity isn't enough. You must speak from knowledge. This is generally achieved through a great deal of work and some experimentation.
It's really obvious when you don't have it.
A view Russian probes got lost while flying over HAARP, I think Phobos Grunt was the most recent one. The theory is that their electronics was grilled by these high-power transmitters. This one actually makes sense though.
This was obfuscation on the part of the Russians. According to the failure report issued by Roscosmos there were other reasons, including use of non-space-qualified components that were susceptible to radiation damage, and insufficient ground testing.
That's a legit option if you don't mind dragging things out. On the other hand, the sooner the lawsuit is dropped the more money they save and the sooner they can start writing about "the coward who didn't invent e-mail".
WTF is wrong with that sorry excuse for a man?
The shorter list is what isn't wrong. Indeed that list is so short that aside from "breathes in oxygen" I can't think of anything to put on it.
In that press conference a few days ago he mentioned Hillary Clinton sixteen times.
He - or his handlers - is smart enough to know a dog whistle when he hears one. Nothing excites the GOP base as much as the name "Clinton". He could mention Chelsea Clinton's child - or for that matter mention NY Governor Clinton (who was responsible for the Erie Canal) - and the GOP would promptly circle jerk themselves into a frothy frenzy. If a little bit is good, then obviously even more is even more gooder, right?
I'm sure others here can come up with other examples?
Probably, but it doesn't matter... there's already enough well-known prior art out there that this guy is well into "kook" territory. More evidence that he's a kook isn't going to change his opinion. A court slapdown might, although I suspect they'll drop the case before it gets to that point.
Why in the heck is a supposed billionaire still using a Galaxy S3? At least tell us that it's been unlocked and it running Cyanogenmod or something...
You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.
