SparkFun investigates fake Atmel ICs,

Atmel Visit-14

Chip-Compare

Incredible story about some fake Atmel ICs!

If you’ve been following the saga of the fake Atmel ICs, you know what’s going on. If not, read back in time a bit: ATmega Slugs and X-Rays. So a few weeks ago, our writer Chris walks into my office and against all reasonable odds of coincidence in this world, Chris let’s me know that his very own father (Tim) works in the Failure Analysis labs at Atmel. What? Really? Where? In Colorado Springs about 2 hours away. You’re kidding?! Tim had kindly offered to have us come through the lab and analyze the ICs for us.
