[title] The A6 Processor
[* black] Let's start by cutting into the A6 to see what [http://www.roadandtrack.com/var/ezflow_site/storage_RT_NEW/storage/images/future-cars/first/2012-audi-a6/2256628-3-eng-US/2012-audi-a6.jpg|drives] it.
[* black] What does the top of a metal die of the A6 processor look like? To us it looks like a Wheat Thin.
[* black] So how was this photo created, you may ask?
[* black] The A6 is first delayeredde-layered in a fuming sulfiruc acid solution, heated to a temprature designed to get best results.

[* black] Then, Chipworks engineers use an optical microscope to take images of the die. The die is loaded onto a servo controlled [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Y_table|X-Y table], and focus is set and maintained by laser monitoring.
[* black] Image coordinates are programmed into the system. The microscope moves the die automatically and takes several images, which are stitched together to create the full die photo.
[* black] The machine used for the process can be seen in third image.
