Chip photography – part 1

The first actual post about chip photography gave the path towards the goal to see the beautiful silicon die. I have copied the content of the Instagram post in case the embedded frame does not work properly.

🌟Chip photography 🌟 🔶 The long procedure 🔶 I was recently asked about how I take photos of microchips. This is a long, messy, dangerous, demanding, tiring process with lots of failures along the way. In this particular example, we see one half of the Intel Pentium Pro CPU. The process follows the following path: 🔶 Desoldering the chips from the circuit boards 🔶 Reaching the silicon surface with features 🔶 Taking the actual photos Sounds simple, isn’t it? 😎 Not quite. 🤨 Step 2 causes countless issues. It can last from several days to many weeks. Sadly, some chips don’t survive it. There is plenty to say about each of the processes, so come back tomorrow to learn about the first stage of setting free the beautiful chip.

🔶 The long procedure 🔶

I was recently asked about how I take photos of microchips. This is a long, messy, dangerous, demanding, tiring process with lots of failures along the way.

In this particular example, we see one half of the Intel Pentium Pro CPU.

The process follows the following path:

🔶 Desoldering the chips from the circuit boards

🔶 Reaching the silicon surface with features

🔶 Taking the actual photos

Sounds simple, isn’t it? 😎

Not quite. 🤨

Step 2 causes countless issues. It can last from several days to many weeks. Sadly, some chips don’t survive it.

There is plenty to say about each of the processes, so come back tomorrow to learn about the first stage of setting free the beautiful chip.
