The Wedding Announcement (Brightfield)

The Wedding Announcement (Brightfield)

This unusual wedding announcement appears on the Silicon Graphics MIPS R10000 microprocessor. The inscription reads: Ellen & Yeuk-Hai, May 25, 1996 and we are told that the announcement is for the wedding of a MIPS design engineer who supervised the development of masks for this microprocessor. The size of the announcement is approximately 100 microns. We were given a copy of the original photograph (courtesy of Yeuk-Hai Shark Mok) from which the wedding announcement was derived, and this is displayed below for comparison purposes.
