Smithsonian - The Chip Collection

The National Museum of American History's Chip Collection consists of individual donations of objects, images and documenation that traces the history of integrated circuits.

Smithsonian - The Chip Collection

The Chip Collection is a continuing work-in-progress concerning a small part of the permanent collection of the Division of Information Technology & Society's Electricity Collections.

ICE, originally located in Phoenix & Scottsdale, Arizona, was purchased after ICE's 30-year collection had been donated & accessioned by the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution.

This site's refrence pictures, diagrams, x-rays, thumbnail selections, and in some cases actual logbook pages in a single category to make your research faster.

Chip Fun
An important though unusual aspect of the history of integrated circuit technology is buried deep inside many chips, we call this chip art.

Texas Instruments - TI Semiconductors

Texas Instruments, better known in the electronics industry (and popularly) as TI, is an American company based in Dallas, Texas, USA, renowned for developing and commercializing semiconductor and computer technology.

Texas Instruments - TI Semiconductors

Chip IC Products include Solutions in Analog, DSP- Digital Signal Processing, Power Management, A/D Converter, Microcontroller based Systems, Mixed Signal Designs, Multiplexers and Thermal Management Solutions.

Here is a copy of a very old Application Book of TI, that helped me in learning more in Mixed design.

Voltage Regulators LM7812 and LM317

The LM78XX series of three-terminal positive regulators is available in the TO-220 package and with several fixed output voltages, making them useful in a wide range of applications. Each type employs internal current limiting, thermal shut-down, and safe operating area protection.

    Principles of Semiconductor Devices

    The purpose of this text is to explore the internal behavior of semiconductor devices, so that we can understand the relation between the device geometry and material parameters on one hand and the resulting electrical characteristics on the other hand.

    Principles of Semiconductor Devices 

    Principles of Semiconductor Devices  

    "The Primary Focus: The MOSFET and CMOS Integrated Circuits The Metal-Oxide-Silicon Field-Effect-Transistor (MOSFET) is the main subject of this text, since it is already the prevailing device in microprocessors and memory circuits. In addition, the MOSFET is increasingly used in areas as diverse as mainframe computers and power electronics. The MOSFET’s advantages over other types of devices are its mature fabrication technology, its successful scaling characteristics and the combination of complementary MOSFETs yielding CMOS circuits."

    Some of the Topics
    • Schottky diode current
    • Metal-Semiconductor contacts
    • Electrostatic analysis of a p-n diode
    • Reverse bias breakdown
    • Optoelectronic devices
    • Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
    • Ideal transistor model
    • MOSFET SPICE MODEL
    • Power MOSFETs
