  1. Hmmm, as much fun as this was, it was actually from 2018. -Eric

  2. Thanks Eric! I corrected the error. I guess it took them 4 years to make this video public on their YouTube channel!

  3. Great interview and kudos to mr Fossum. His invention literally changed my life.
    I joined Micron in 2004, working on DRAM and then I switched on Micron image sensor in 2005, first smartphones then automotive, so much learning, so many challenges! Thank you mr Fossum.

  4. Great interview, thanks for sharing. And thanks to mr Fossum, his invention literally changed my life. I joined Micron in 2004 on DRAM, then switched on image sensor in 2005, first smartphones, then automotive (with a stint in DSLR); so much learning and fun through all the challenges. Thanks to mr Fossum.

  5. Great interview!
    Eric: started from 25 years, I am keep learning from you!
