What is a dieshot

A dieshot is a photograph of an integrated circuit's die. The die is semiconductor which contains the chips functionality. This is usually a tiny thin piece of silicon embedded in the chips package. It can be anywhere from the size of a grain of sand to a couple inches, and can contain a single transistor or billions. For quality dieshots, photos need to be taken through a microscope, and often have to be stitched together from many images, in a lengthy process. Dieshots are taken for a various reasons including marketing the product, a form of art, or reverse engineering the circuit. Most dieshots are produced by the chips manufacturer/designer, but there is also a small community of photographers.
