We had so much fun introducing visitors to what is inside of integrated circuits last year at Maker Faire that we’re going to do it again! For Bay Area Maker Faire 2019 we are excited to be again joining forces with Eric Schlaepfer and Ken Shirriff, along with our new collaborator John McMaster. We’ll again be bringing decapped chips along with microscopes to let visitors see what’s inside of famous and interesting integrated circuits. We’ll also be bringing large scale reference models. Bay Area Maker Faire is May 17-19 at the San Mateo County Event Center. You can check out our Maker Faire page and we’ll hope to see you there!

It’s interesting, what’s inside. (I spent a couple of months working at a test lab in Sunnyvale, back in the late 1970s. We opened them up, photographed the chips, and the more complex ones got run through a SEM. I still remember how pretty transistors are.)
I’m hoping to make it to One Last Maker Faire, on the Saturday, before (after so many delays!) running off to complete the farm-buying process. The family schedule for May is still mighty unsettled, though, so no telling whether I’ll actually be able to attend.
