Item005: AMD Athlon Microprocessor Necklace - Bronze, Gold, Pink Brown
About the Jewelry
The subject of this pendant is a computer chip known as a Flip Chip. In the early days, chips were connected to the leads of the package with gold interconnect wires. Flip Chips skip the wires and have tiny balls of solder attached directly to the chips. The chip is flipped over, face down, and the chip is vibrated until the solder melts, attaching it directly to the package’s leads. This pendant was created from a turn-of-the-century AMD Athlon microprocessor. The pink/blue square is the chip itself.
The pendant (due to manufacturing differences your chip may look slightly different than the one pictured here), a 24" bronze necklace, and a ChipScapes card that gives information about this jewelry.
