Small Wonder

The small sized electronic chips have changed the world, and the way we live, drastically. From house hold appliances like microwave ovens and LCD televisions,digital cameras to aircraft, satellites and defense equipment, one cannot deny the fact that these devices have conquered the world.

It is very hard to imagine that 2000 million devices are packed inside the modern chips. The size of each device is of the order of 45 nano meter (which is as small as one thousandth thickness of human hair). The world would come to a stand still without these miniature devices.

The electronics industry has achieved a phenomenal growth over the last two decades, mainly due to the rapid advances in integration technologies, large-scale systems design – in short, due to the advent of VLSI(Very Large Scale Integration). The number of applications of integrated circuits in high-performance computing, telecommunications, medicine and consumer electronics has been rising steadily, and at a very fast pace. Typically, the required computational power (or, in other words, the intelligence) of these applications is the driving force for the fast development of this field.

Moore’s law describes a long-term trend in the history of computing hardware. The number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years.The trend has continued for more than half a century and is not expected to stop until 2015 or later.The capabilities of many digital electronic devices are strongly linked to Moore’s law: processing speed, memory capacity, sensors and even the number of size of pixels in digital cameras.All of these are improving at (roughly) exponential rates as well. This has dramatically increased the usefulness of digital electronics in nearly every segment of the world economy. Moore’s law is the driving force of technological and social change in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

About Bhavani Anantapur Bache

I'm an enthusiastic and self-motivated Software Engineer with a passion for building cutting-edge innovative products related to Embedded Systems. In a career spanning over 6 years in Software/Hardware technologies, I got involved the leading an entire software development life-cycle of projects from understanding the requirements and scope, product design, writing code, writing automation tests, documentation, debugging and fixing issues to release of the product to the customer. Such experience contributed towards my advanced proficiency in C++ and object-oriented programming. I liked working on Linux operating system, Linux shell scripting, writing Makefiles and Python. I enjoy solving complex problems and actively participate in programming challenges. I have a passion for innovation with a proven track record of publications in the international journals and conferences, in the areas of Signal Processing, Data Mining, and Machine learning. Currently, I'm working on building novel solutions using signal processing, data mining and machine learning methodologies. I aspire to build new products that would leverage my unique background in software, hardware, and machine learning and that would make a significant impact on the end user.
