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