MOS 6522

We were happy to receive a MOS 6522 Versatile Interface Adapter (VIA) from Andreas Schiffler on January 14, 2011. This chip has a notable bug, and we're excited to start looking into it.

The die shot is stitched from 64 separate microscope shots by Greg James in San Francisco taken with a Nikon LV150 with an LU Plan Fluor 20x objective. The images were corrected and stitched automatically by Christian Sattler in the UK, using Autopano-sift-C and custom code. The largest image here is half the size in each dimension of the original die shot.
