T

here’s a time and a place for selfies, and the workplace may or may not be one of them. You decide as you take a gander at our cartoon engineer setting himself up for a glamour shot against the backdrop of a server farm. We invite you to Xercise your funny bone and submit an engineering- or technology-related caption for this self-centered cartoon. The image might inspire a caption like “En route to finalizing his self-correcting network design, Sam decided a selfie was in order.” Send your entries to xcell@xilinx.com. Include your name, job title, company affiliation and location, and indicate that you have read the contest rules at www.xilinx.com/xcellcontest. After due deliberation, we will print the submissions we like the best in the next issue of Xcell Journal. The winner will receive a Digilent Zynq Zybo board, featuring the Xilinx ® Zynq ®-7000 All Programmable SoC (http://www.xilinx.com/products/ boards-and-kits/1-4AZFTE.htm). Two runners-up will gain notoriety and fame when we print their captions, names and affiliations in the next issue. The contest begins at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on March 1, 2016. All entries must be received by the sponsor by 5 p.m. PT on May 1, 2016.

“Frank now realized why they asked him if he could troubleshoot problematic chips on the fly in his recent interview.”

Congratulations as well to our two runners-up: “Carl’s old-school manualdebugging skills made quite an impression on the team.” — Luis Benites, staff hardware FPGA engineer, Spirent (Agoura Hills, Calif.) “Joe finally understands all the buzz around IoT.” – Daniel C. Kline, CEO, ParaTechnica (West Bend, Wis.)
