IDT is Number One

IDT is Number One

Holding a finger in the air, this hand is either signifying that IDT is number one, or that AMY is number one, or both. This miniature silicon doodle resides on an IDT 71V546 4 Mbit synchronous SRAM organized as 128K x 36 bits. The chip is designed to eliminate dead bus cycles when turning the bus around between reads and writes, and thus has been named a ZBT chip for Zero Bus Turn-around.

The chip containing this artwork was loaned to us by Chipworks, a company that is an international provider of reverse engineering services, analyzing the circuitry and physical composition of semiconductor chips and electronics systems for competitive study, intellectual property support, and reliability assurance.
