Die Shot: The SFC2741 – a 741 op-amp in a TO-99 package #DieShot @Siliconinsid @johndmcmaster
The Thomson SFC2741 (1975) – It’s a classic 741 operational amplifier!
You probably have used it (maybe in DIP-8 form), but maybe not in its original TO-99 metal package.
(Ed. Note: Radio Shack used to sell a circuit board fitting a TO-99 package)
A 121 megapixels image is available on @johndmcmaster‘s siliconpr0n website.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
