#6: Engineering a New Microarchitecture (Jon Perry)
Something special happened at Ampere when our interns took over the studio to interview their mentors! In this episode, Tony Faubert (UWashington) invites Jon Perry to chat about his origin story into engineering and CPU design. Jon is a Senior Principal Engineer at Ampere, and he speaks on the group dynamics of a small team, building technical culture, and how diversity of thought is beneficial when crafting a new core microarchitecture. Tony shares his experience as an intern in the performance team, and the mind-boggling freedom he was given to explore and contribute to our upcoming processor this past summer.
