Item042: Silicon Wafer Computer Chip Earrings - Purple & Fire
About the Jewelry
These earrings were made with pieces of a 12” silicon wafer. This wafer had thousands of computer chips on it. Under this card is a micro-photo of a 0.1x0.1mm section of the wafer. This wafer was created with test chips on it. These custom logic test chips were made around 2010. The various types of computer chip test circuits allowed the maker to verify that the manufacturing process was working correctly. These test patterns can make some of the most colorful silicon wafers. The grids made by memory circuit and test logic refract light and create fire in the jewelry The circuits are created to test various standard circuit types. By creating known circuits with known behaviors, the manufacturing line can be tested for any functional problems.
