Your group designs a microprocessor for use in cell phones and palmtop
computers. You currently fabricate your chips on a 0.25micron process. A new
fabrication facility with a 0.13micron process has asked you if you would like
to switch to their facility. What do you believe will be the three most
important tradeoffs between remaining with the 0.25 micron fabrication process
and switching to the 0.13 micron process?
Q3How to choose between optimization and work completion
The average performance of products in your market segment triples every 36
months. Your design engineers have proposed an optimization that will increase
performance by 12%. The optimization will postpone the completion date of the
project by 2 months. Should the engineers implement the optimization and
postpone the completion date, or should they stick to the original schedule?
There are three machines with different processing powers. They each take respectively 2, 10 and 20 units of execution time to finish a task requiring X effort. If we let all three machines work on same task, considering each quantum of task is independent of the other, so that not for a moment a machine has to wait for another one to finish, how long will it take for three machines to finish the given task.
Q5How to find the first 0 in an array containing unknown number of 1s int the beginning.
Given an input array of size unknown with all 1's in the beginning and 0's in
the end. Find the index in the array from where 0's start, consider there are
millions of 1's and 0's in the array .i.e array is very big e.g array contents
