Pac Wolf

The wolf silhouette presented above is the signature of engineer Reo Gargovich, the lead designer of the Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's popular ispPAC30 integrated circuit, a dynamically reconfigurable analog device. The chip contains a total of four programmable gain instrumentation amplifiers, two multiplying digital-to-analog converters, and two configurable output amplifiers with rail-to-rail outputs. One of the design engineers who produced the chip, Greg Rohde, has provided a copy of the chip (illustrated above) and information about the artwork.

There are two additional doodles on the ispPAC30 integrated circuit. One is a pack rat (general logo for the design team), while the other is a can of worms symbolizing the problems encountered during the chip's design.
