    Summary form only given, as follows. In Vol. 12, no. 3 (Summer 2007), page 9, bottom of the left column, in 'Computer Architecture and Amdahl??s Law' by Gene Amdahl, the claim about invalidating Amdahl??s Law in 1988 came from a team at Sandia National Laboratories, and not Los Alamos. The correct text should read: "Several years later I was informed of a proof that Amdahl's Law was invalidated by... View full abstract»

    Reprinted from the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, Vol. 3, No. 4 (1968), pp. 365-373. Among the most signficant presentations in the 50-year history of the ISSCC, Barrie Gilbert's classic paper has become the fifth most frequently cited JSSC article and the first to be cited over 100 times. His brilliant insight was in recognizing that the dependability of a bipolar transistor's nonlinearity... View full abstract»
