  • My guess is that the copper was to thermally enhance whatever was in the package. I doubt it is the “real deal”. Of course, why not just decap the part and look under a microscope. The atmel logo, copyright, and the die identification will be in the silicon.
    It is a real part of some type, so I don’t think doing a contact or leakage test would yield much other than potentially identifying which pins are grounds.

No public wish lists :(
