Face Mask/Neck Gaiter - 6800 Up Close



About this Artwork

This artwork is based on an extreme closeup of a Motorola 6800 microprocessor chip (introduced in 1974). You are looking at the connecting points in a very complex grid of interconnections in the arithmetic and logic section of the 8-bit 6800. This interconnection scheme was much more organized and well thought out than those found in many of the other early microprocessors. When microprocessors were introduced, they were referred to as “random logic” devices. While looking at the microprocessor’s ivy-like traces wandering back and forth, you might believe you have discovered the origin of this naming. However tempting, the name “stems” from the fact that, even though the logic circuits in the microprocessor are fixed in silicon, the microprocessor’s logic is reconfigurable through programming and hence the randomness of the logic. As microprocessors have become more complex, the need for structured logic design has become a necessity for the designer’s productivity… and sanity.
