Remnants of the Elliott MOS Laboratory

Remnants of the Elliott MOS Laboratory

Tasked in 1967 with creating a MOS integrated circuit process, then an 8-bit computer in MOS, the Elliott Microelectronics MOS laboratory building is finally biting the dust. It was the expertise from this development that spawned other UK facilities such as Motorola’s MOS 1 fab.
For many years the attached office building was used by Pico Electronics, inventor of the X-10 protocol and One for All remote controls.

Taiwan, China Solar Silicon Wafer Skyrocketing Up – Aluminum Gravity Casting – Aluminum Gravity

Taiwan, China Solar Silicon Wafer Skyrocketing Up – Aluminum Gravity Casting – Aluminum Gravity
As the shortage of solar silicon wafers the situation became more serious, individual manufacturers full capacity all the mainland in recent quote at top speed increased by 1 month, 6-inch polysilicon wafers from the original 25 yuan per piece move up to 27 yuan, 28 yuan towards the recent Yuan high probability, as the contract under negotiation Q2 Taiwan solar wafer price will rise, and the first two quarters of each piece from the original offer of about 3.2 U.S. dollars, the recent rumors most likely rise to 3.3 to 3.4 adjusted dollars, rose from the original 5% into 8 to 11%, including green energy, silicon and other American industry can be expected Q2 performance, silicon wafer prices continue to rise forecast to move up the battery factory situation.
Recent cross-strait cargo pull-strength solar market has continued to improve, China solar wafer supply, increased, and rapid response to the offer, the solar industry said that just a month less than the mainland 6-inch wafer polysilicon film 25 yuan from each (about 3.5 U.S. dollars) move up to 27 yuan, an increase of 8%. China Solar 6-inch silicon wafer Season 1 Each offer is also less than three U.S. dollars, 15% hike early in March, up 3.5 U.S. dollars, the recent offer fast again pulled up, rate hike more than the original forecast, indicates the hot China market trading conditions.
China solar wafer price move up rapidly, but also affects the 2nd quarter of Taiwan’s offer, even though solar silicon wafers in Taiwan since the 4th quarter of 2009 showed that out, but including green energy, U.S. silicon, Danone, Asahi crystal, etc., remained stable in the water level in the contract offer, the first one quarter of about 3.05 U.S. dollars per unit, originally planned 5% hike in Q2, up 3.2 U.S. dollars, However, because the mainland’s rapid price increases, some of the silicon wafer industry has been higher than the units offer works to promote the buyer turned to grab the Taiwan market goods, so that Taiwan solar wafer Q2 offer up to 3.3 ~ 3.4 U.S. dollars, or about 8 ~ 11%, significantly higher than the original forecast of 5% increase.

Pentium MMX 166Mhz

An attempt to take a macro picture of an opened Pentium CPU. The sharpness and details could be better – need to find a good way to illuminate this. The white dots are dust 😉

This CPU was in use ca. 1997.

Does anyone recognize the different units (ALU, cache, etc..) and can add notes ?

I took this for a technology themed contest over on View Bug. Its amazing that this AMD Athlon 1200Mhz has 37 million transistors in it, from 1999.

Also, I cleaned the top of this with acetone before I took the shot. It looks completely clean and dust free to my eyes, but the 100L macro disagrees =)
