Description

This is a composite pen plot of the individual mask layers for the AMD 2901 bit-slice microprocessor produced on a graphics plotting machine. This size is made as a record for the engineer's file and was often framed and displayed for decorative purposes. Larger versions are used for visual inspection of the design to check that design rules comply with process tolerances or to search for errors in the design.
