There is a place on the Forum or a web page that shows the Propeller chip in detail being dissected to show its guts. It may be from someone that works for Parallax. Now that I'm looking for it, I cannot find it.

No, not those. The person had used some kind of acid to expose various inner layers of the prop chip and had very large and detailed photos. Was it Beau?

No, that's not it.

The actual autopsy was shown with many photos. I'm thinking it was a web site. I believe it was from one of the Parallax technical engineers.

http://www.flylogic.net/blog/?p=148Thank you Ron. That's definitely the short version and I recognize the same large photos. I see a reference to Chris. He apparently has a long version posted somewhere too.

It's still a mystery where the main Propeller autopsy page is located. I have done additional searches and did not find the web page.
