Default Opened up stk chips

If I recall correctly (and I rarely do) someone on here had put up pics of a sliced open stk darlington chip.
Could someone post me that link, or atleast the method used to open it, Acetone isn't making a scratch on it.
Thanks guys.
Cool.
Srinath.

Big diagonal cutters, vise grips, or a hammer works well. If you have a vise, stick just the plastic of one side in it and twist at the other side with the vise grips or pliers.

Really, I'm not trying to strike a match or anything like that. Curiosity gets the better of me. What is the purpose of doing this? Is there some insight to be expected? Is this DIY failure analysis?

failure analysis

That's why I used to do it.

I have a few dead IC's some are unobtanium, so I decided to cut a few open so I can possibly recreate the function of the dead ones. I think I can, I opened up the ones I have that are dead, looks like a pair of transistors would do nicely, I used a dremel tool on mine, and next time I'll use a hand hacksaw. If you want to save the chip hacksaw is better, but either way I think its doable, especially if you have good schematics on the chip.

Anyway audiokarma had the hacked up chips and pics.

Thanks.
Srinath.
