Made in America (Darkfield)

Made in America (Darkfield)

The Texans who work at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) in Austin, Texas are loyal Americans as evidenced by the photomicrograph above. This image features a silicon rendition of the American flag (old Glory) with the slogan "Made in USA". We captured this flag on a AM29C660 AMD standard logic integrated circuit manufactured in (or around) 1989 that was recovered from an early Sun Microsystems SPARC motherboard.
