About this Artwork

This artwork is a mixed media display celebrating the MOS 6502. The artwork is one-of-kind displaying a MOS MCS6502 (the only one I have). This chip was made in the 3rd week of 1977. The MCS packaging of the 6502 is very rare using white ceramic and gold. The chip has been tested and is fully functional. The chip is in excellent condition (see pictures above).

The 6502 processor introduced in 1975, was MOS’ first successful product. Although influenced by the design philosophy of the Motorola 6800, the 6502 is clearly a different and more advanced chip design. 

This artwork includes three major elements. It has a large image of a MOS 6502 chip. On the back is a narrative describing the artwork and the 6502, and the artist’s signature. Also, included is a MOS 6502 chip in white ceramic with gold leads. This fully functional chip is mounted and is surrounded by an enlarged diagram of the chip with the electrical signal designations for each of its leads.


    The artwork is framed in an 11"x14" black shadow box frame, with glass. All framing materials are acid-free. A narrative about the artwork that includes the artist’s signature is placed on the back of the artwork.

    Please note:  This artwork is unique. The chip in the pictures is the chip you will receive.
