IC Pics Using a Standard Digital Camera Update

As you can see, I made a change to my layout. I added a lego brick housing to support the lens assembly along with the camera finally on my missing tripod, then a new ultra-bright flashlight.


Now for some more pictures :D

  2. I think either HCL or HNO3. Correct me if I'm wrong. But I'm quite sure it is some type of acid.

  3. Actually what I did was remove these ICs with a heat gun because they were covered in thermo-setting epoxy. Then I used an xacto knife to scrape it off very carefully. I believe sulfuric acid is used because HLC (hydrogen chloride) has a tenancy to dissolve certain kinds of metals.
