Macro microchip

Chip Inside
From the MAKE Flickr photo pool

Member etharooni gives us a macro peek inside an IC package –

It really is amazing. This is a BIOS chip that holds about 256KB of EPROM memory. (Thanks oskay) Millions of transistors fill up just a little less than one square millimeter, slightly less computing power as the ENIAC filling up a big ol’ room.
