This artwork is a mixed media display celebrating the RCA 1802 microprocessor. The COSMAC 1802 was RCA's first single chip microprocessor.The COSMAC architecture was the first microprocessor based on CMOS chip technology. CMOS chips could be suspended to save battery life, operated in extended temperature ranges, and were more tolerant of electronic interference. It is no wonder that the COSMAC was the first microprocessor in space. The 1802 flew on the Galileo spacecraft, and other earth satellites.
While only a few COSMACs flew in space, they had wide commercial use. For example, they were used in Chrysler electronic ignitions, RCA and Radio Shack video games, RCA video terminals, Elf computers, and ETI-660 computers.
This artwork includes 3 major items. It has a large image of a.On the back are the artists signature and a narrative describing the artwork and the 1802. Also, the artwork includes a RCA 1802 chip in a polyresin 40-lead Dual In-line Package. These artworks are the creation of. Are photographs taken of computer chips, boards, and other computer artifacts.
They are sort of chip landscapes, or. Most often a macro-lens or microscope is used with special lightning to achieve these unique artworks.
Intel, IBM, Fairchild, DEC, Signetics, Intersil, AMD, Zilog, Motorola, MOS, NEC, Texas Instruments, are some of the great chip making companies. Chips like the Intel 4004, MOS 6502, Zilog Z80, AMD 2901, IBM PowerPC and others have changed the way people work and play. Are dedicated to preserving and sharing these computing and communication technologies that changed the world. Works of Art are fine collectible artworks. Would make a great gift for the nerd, geek, engineer, programmer, IT executive, or just that technology savvy person in your life.Limited by availability of chips.
