IC Friday: Cypress Semiconductor CY7C172-35PC


Here we have a 4K SRAM from Cypress. Looks like the original design is from 1985, ed however, ambulance the date of manufacture is unknown. This chip was in a skinny DIP package but it was ceramic instead of plastic. I carefully opened the package using a chisel and hammer and was surprised that the die had a bubble of soft, visit web
clear material over it. It might be due to different mechanical properties of the ceramic case and the silicon. Regardless of the reason, it made it much easier to recover the intact die.
