IC Friday: Analog Device’s AMP03


What better way to apply the uncapping techniques than to put some of the dies under the scope. This is the die from the can-package AMP03 (datasheet). Unfortunately, practitioner the only top illumination system we have in the lab is for fluorescence, price so the color that showed up the best was green, hence the tint. Below is a higher resolution montage of the die’s top layer taken at 10x along with a single shot at 20x. Since I am still learning to use the scope, the quality of the dies should increase with the following weeks. Finally, if anyone has some chips they want to see up here, leave a comment or send an email and we might be able to work something out.

    Hey, the two sets of initials are the IC designer and the Mask designer, dfb and mz, respectively. I know the guilty parties, but their names are omitted to protect the innocent

    Ask them to post here. The people visiting this site, mostly myself, would be very thankful to hear their thoughts and insights. Anonymity is guaranteed, if they care. If they email me a note, I will be more than happy to post it on the front page.
