SRAM+Flash hybrid FPGA contains an XC3S50A die from Xilinx and an Atmel DataFlash die wire-bonded together.

The die ID code of the FPGA (X8701) matches the regular XC3S50A.

Full-die imagery of the FPGA was not acquired because the die is identical to the regular XC3S50A, which has already been imaged.

Device was decapped in-package with 68% HNO3 on 1/29/2014 by lab group A of CSCI 4974/6974 at RPI. Note leadframe damage and bond wires with one end floating; the floating bond wires were easily bent by a short blast of compressed air.

FPGA die

The FPGA die is covered by an overcoat which can be scratched off with a scalpel blade but does not respond to acid. Possibly some sort of polyimide?
