Silicon Wafer Microprocessor Earrings - Silver/Rainbow,Texas Instruments
About the Jewelry Set
This necklace was made from a Texas Instruments Silicon Wafer that contained TMS370 microprocessors, actually, microcomputers to be more exact. The original wafer was 6" in diameter and was made in 1997. It had about 116 computer chips on it. The TMS370 family of microprocessors were 8-bit designs with on-board RAM and ROM memory systems (these are the small brightly colored rectangles). These microprocessors would have been used to provide intelligence to some tools, equipment, or appliances. The earrings are about 3/4" square.
