This artwork is a mixed media display celebrating the Intel 4004 and its supporting chipset: The 4001 ROM, The 4002 RAM, and the 4003 I/O Expander. Introduced in 1971, the Intel 4004 was the worlds first microprocessor, and the 4001, 4002, 4003 were the first microprocessor chipset.Each of these chips did double duty providing multiple functions for the 4004. The Busicom 141-pf was the first calculator/computer to use an Intel 4004. It also used all of the chips of the 4004 chipset, except for the 4002-2. This 11"x14" artwork includes several items. It has a large image of the 4004 Intel chip.
The center picture, on the right, shows an x-ray view of a 4004 chip package and shows how the 4004 silicon chip is suspended in the plastic package and is connected to its leads. On the back are the artists signature and a narrative describing the artwork and the chip. Also, the artwork includes actual working chips as follows.
The Intel P4004 Microprocessor chip. The Intel P4001 ROM chip. The Intel P4002-1 RAM chip, and.
The Intel P4003 Serial I/O chip. Each of these P chips are in a black polyresin 16 lead DIP (Dual Inline Package). These artworks are the creation of ChipScapesTM artist Steve Emery.
