A Computer Chip Trivet

It's a useful little thing that you can make out of all those chips that you have with "BAD" written on them. Well, all the ones in ceramic packages, anyway!


Learn how to make it here.

    Is that a couple of transputers in there, T225s (the 16-bit ones)? I used to work for INMOS, you see, and wrote software for those. Although, my favourite transputer was the M212, the disk controller one with the dual 8-bit I/O ports and 2k of on-chip RAM.

    Cool, and yes!

    Zooming in on the pictures, I can see the INMOS IMST225 and a IMST805 32-bit transputer. I've also got an old IMSC004, which didn't make it into the trivet. (Wikipedia has a page about transputers.)

    Some of the other interesting things in there are the Motorola XC96002 DSP, four NS32202 interrupt controllers, two 68020s, two 68881s, two ADSP-2111 microcomputers, and two AD7886 ADCs.
