  • News - Revisiting the Counterfei… | about 4 years ago

    Fuming nitric works better to eat away that package. Also, the Xray pretty much showed the wirebonding/pads - so you know it’s not just a Cu slug. I would suggest saw/polish the die in half, then look under a microscope and see if you can spot the interconnects within the die. By the Xray, the pads are in a different orientation on the counterfeit. I’m guessing these are counterfeit, but pretty good ones. If you have access to FIB/DIB and SEM you could image some of the exposed silicon. Perhaps do some polish to get into the traces first?

No public wish lists :(
