UAAP Season 80 Preview: Now contenders, Adamson Falcons embracing the pressure

What’s important for us is to stress and make sure that we can be mentally tough and prepared for this coming season in terms of how to handle pressure.” MOST READ “We need to improve on our finish last year, but we have a tough task ahead of us. As we all know, other teams have been rebuilding since last year. It’s a never ending process. Two years ago, they’ve stockpiled their players so we just have to assess everything once the season gets going,” he said.The Soaring Falcons will have a virtually intact line up with Cameroonian big man Papi Sarr upfront, together with the trio of Jerrick Ahanmisi, Robbie Manalang, and Sean Manganti.Pumaren, though, is expecting more from his bench unit as he wants Adamson to be unpredictable on both ends.“Hopefully, we can get some lift from our guys and the rest of the team because it’s so hard if you rely in only a couple of guys. You’ll be predictable,” he said.But more than the talent, Pumaren is putting emphasis on he mental side of things as he seeks to see a more mature Adamson crew this year.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Coach: Franz PumarenLast Season: 8-6 (Final Four)Holdovers: Jerrick Ahanmisi, Robbie Manalang, Papi Sarr, Sean MangantiAdditions: Tyrus Hill, Koko PingoyKey Losses: Jaydee Tungcab, Harold NgADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award End of his agony?

How its made Crucial SSDs come from very clean rooms

first_imgIf you’ve ever wondered how solid state drives (SSDs) are made, then your wish will be answered over the course of the next 243 seconds. Semiconductor manufacturer Crucial has put together a video explaining just how SSDs are made, complete with some excellent visuals of the process.Here is the basic outline, from the design through packaging:Design the flash storage (Unlike many SSD vendors, Crucial actually does this)Measure memory circuitry, down the the billionth of a meter (a nanometer)Create very tiny paths on wafer (the circuits), just like on a processorOnce the wafers are finished (Crucial skipped a number of steps here) they are cut into individual chipsThe chips are put on circuit boards. They are affixed with gold wires by a very cool machine (1:29 if you want to see it in action)After inspection a protective piece of plastic is molded around each chipFlash memory chips are similarly cut and then tested.After passing testing chips are laser etched with their informationWith the components assembled, actual SSD production begins on a PCB (which Crucial also makes)Flash memory and other components are mounted on the PCB with pick-and-place machinesSSDs are inspected, by computer and visually, before they are separatedThe boards are then put into their 2.5-inch protective housings (this is what see when looking at an SSD)The information sticker is attached and the firmware is installedSSDs are tested for up to 60 hours to ensure stability and performance. Some drives are further tested with a variety of actual computers (not just huge, multi-drive testing machines)Drives are places in their retail packaging and shippedAt the core, building an SSD isn’t too different from a processor, SoC, and other any number of other semiconductors. There are a few extra steps, such as the protective packaging and the installation of firmware, but if you’re familiar with how CPUs are built then most of the scenes from this video were probably quite familiar to you.In case you were wondering, Crucial noted that the majority of this video was shot at the company’s factories in Singapore and China.And that’s how an SSD is made! It’s a very cool process and we’re glad Crucial gave us a bit of insight into its facilities, technology, and wonderfully clean rooms.More how it’s made articles at Geek.comlast_img read more
