Will Smith - Collectible Intel Chips

This is my rare Intel chip collection.  With these products, Intel created the modern computer industry.  Some of these chips are now quite valuable (see the excellent "Intel Vintage Chip Collecting Guide", by George M. Phillips for more details).  These chips are not for sale.  I intend to sell them when I retire, around 2038.


4004 CPU series.
The worlds first microprocessor series.  Introduced in 1971, 0.7 MHz, 4-bit, comprising 2300 transistors.   Able to address 4kbytes of ROM and 640 bytes of RAM.   "Grey traces" versions (the two on the left) are earlier and much rarer than the all-white versions.



4040 CPU series.
Enhanced version of the 4004.  Introduced in 1974, 0.7MHz, 4-bit, comprising 3000 transistors. Able to address 8kbytes of memory. 
3002 CPU series.
"Bitslice" processor, rarely found because of the complexity and cost of building bitslice circuits.  Introduced in 1974, 6Mhz.  Chip below is a rare ES ('engineering sample').



8008 CPU series.
The first 8 bit CPU.  Introduced in 1972, 0.5MHz (C8008) or 0.8MHz (8008-1), comprising 3500 transistors.  Able to address 16kbytes of memory.



8080 CPU series.
Enhanced 8-bit processors.  Introduced in 1975.  2MHz (8080, 8080A) or faster (8080A-1, etc).  Later production runs include a copyright message (below are earlier runs).


4004 series - 4001 support chip.
These assist a 4004 CPU, and comprise 256 bytes of ROM memory.
3002 series - 3003 support chip.
"Look ahead carry generator".  These assist a 3002 CPU.



3101 static RAM series.
Intel's first product, introduced in 1969. 64 bit (8 byte) static RAM.
1702 EPROM series.
Introduced in 1971 (1702) and in 1972 (1702A).  2nd ever EPROM (first was the 1701 series).
1101 static RAM series.
Introduced in 1969 (1101) and in 1970 (1101A).  256 bit (32 byte) static RAM.
2102 static RAM series.
1024 bit (256 byte) static RAM.



1103 dynamic RAM series.
The first ever DRAMs, the basic technology as the memory used in today's computers (although we now have millions or billions of bytes in our computers).  Responsible for killing off the previous "core memory" technology.  Introduced 1970, 1024 bits (128 bytes).
