Intel Sandy Bridge Single Core Re-shoot [JPG]

Intel Sandy Bridge Single Core Re-shoot [JPG]

Re-shoot of a sandy bridge core. I have not taken a picture of this specific chip before, but I have taken pictures of sandy bridge cores in the past. This one has less scratches and I have removed the dust in post processing. I’m not sure why, but the stitching software just does not like sandy bridge chips and I can never stitch a full one without significant warping. I’m working on seeing if I can correct for it in Photoshop.

I’m not exactly sure which CPU this is but it is probably a Pentium G630 or something like that, it has 2 cores.

Intel Pentium 120MHz SY062 (No Dust Removal)

Intel Pentium 120MHz SY062 (No Dust Removal)

This is an Intel Pentium 120MHz with an sspec of SY062. It was pulled from an old desktop that was given to me by a friend.

The cooler was not properly attached to the processor (2 clamps broken) and it did not have any thermal paste or pads.

It uses most likely uses the P54CQS processor core and is based on the P5 micro architecture.

It operates at 3.3 Volts (Modern chips use ~1.4 Volts), has a maximum power consumption of 13.4 Watts and can operate from 0°C – 70°C.

I was hoping I could keep it in working order after opening up the lid but I unfortunately slipped as the lid came off and slit 3 of the wires.

I took some advice from Pauli Rautakorpi from another post to downscale the individual images since they are higher resolution than the smallest details my microscope can resolve. I used XnConvert to downscale each of the 88 photos by 50% from their original size. This allowed me to use Autopano Giga, another software tool which performs better than Microsoft ICE at stitching these images (when it works). Autopano Giga does not like the 24MP photos and rarely works with them, but it was able to handle the down-scaled photos just fine!

GIMP was then used to manually remove all of the dust and solder particles which I was unable to remove prior to taking the image. Please use the other image I posted without the dust removed for any reverse engineering attempts, I may have unintentionally modified some structures in the dust removal process!

Intel i5 2500 iGPU Crop

Intel i5 2500 iGPU Crop

This was from a full die composite I tried to do but it failed miserably. It is the same one that the single core crop came from. Since people seem to have really liked that one, here is the igpu from that same session. I was focusing my dust removal attention towards the cores, so I did not clean this as much as I would have liked.

Intel i5 2500 – ring light (98% quality JPG)

Intel i5 2500 - ring light (98% quality JPG)

This is the same i5 2500 I took pictures of previously, but I have improved my techniques since then. This is the first time I am using a "ring light" that attaches itself to the microscope objective. This light does not have PWM and so it does not cause any dark banding on the edges.

I also put much more effort into cleaning any dirt off of it this time, which is a lot harder than you might think. I cannot touch the die because at this magnification the microscopic drops of oil and flakes from my skin would be present, and any cleaning cloth I use must not leave any debris behind (bottom left corner for instance). So cleaning this involved me wearing gloves and using a touchscreen cleaning solution called WHOOSH which also happens to do a very good job at removing fingerprints and repelling dust! The solution was removed and rubbed in with a paper towel gently. I then used a toothpick to remove any visible pieces of debris (The particle in the bottom left showed up mid shot, I cannot move the die when at this stage so I had to let it go.)

This is a composite of 168 images taken by a pixel 2XL from a microscope at 40X. The images had 65% overlap and were stitched together in Microsoft Image Composite Editor using the structured panorama mode.

Resurecting the old box 1

Resurecting the old box 1

There was an old Nec powermate lying in the dust hosting that piece of xxxx aka Windows XP. Then came an idea, may be a bad one. Why not installing FreeBSD 11 on this old hardware (1Gb ram / 30Gb hdd / no dedicated graphics / Intel Celeron 2.4GHz)
