See what electronics really look like when you see it up close...

This is for the macro photography patch contest. I am forced to make this slideshow because adding pictures on comments is disabled, I don't know if it is a bug or a pro feature, so I'll go ahead and put pictures onto this slideshow.

Enjoy!

  • The first three pictures are components on the mother board from a PC computer. (The smallest component you can see are no bigger than 2x1 mm.) I am astonished when the whole mother board looks speck free of dust, but up close, it is really that dirty...
  • The fourth picture with a ruler for scale
  • The fifth picture is the CPU. (I think!)
  • The sixth picture is the conner of the CPU.
  • The seventh picture is the top view of an RGB LED with a microchip, three LED's (you can't really see them), and wires that are made of gold?
  • The eighth picture is the side view of an RGB LED.
  • The ninth picture is the veroboard up close.
  • The tenth picture is the transistor in TO 92 type package
  • The eleventh picture is a 1/4 watt resistor

Whoaaa i didn't knew LED is like that inside :]<br />Good Job Plasmana as always.<br />
so.... HOT
Wow, very nice. What did you use?
What camera I used you mean? I used Olympus D-390, modified to take pictures up close.
Plasmana, i know that you are good with electronics, can you give me any suggestion on Instructables the movie...<br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/community/Instructables-the-movie/">http://www.instructables.com/community/Instructables-the-movie/</a><br/>
Oh so that's why it's blurred out towards the edges. My fujifilm takes better macro's unmodded.
I have an Olympus Stylus 720 SW, also macro modded!
Did you happen to see my instructablle on pictures of microchips?<br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Getting-In-Touch-With-Your-Inner-Chip/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Getting-In-Touch-With-Your-Inner-Chip/</a><br/>You can use the front lens assembly of a pair of binoculars to get even closer. <br/>
How would you modify a camera to take pictures like this?
are those little things in the first picture resistors or what are they i see alot of those on circuit boards
The black ones with numbers are resistors. The yellow/white ones are capacitors. I don't know about the other ones like the blue one with a gold ring.
The blue one with the 0 on it is a "zero ohm resistor." Used like pin jumpers, just the surface mount version. It creates a short between the two pads.
Why not just but a glob of solder jumping them?
But seriously, why solder in a special part, that is just as effective as a little line or glob of solder???
With reflow soldering processes you cannot get a blob of solder. The solder will flow to both pads, and separate in the middle. You can do it with a blob by hand however.
Huh? You can upload images to comments... (Let's hope this works otherwise I'll be like really embarassed...)
*Oops...*
Now you know why I did this. xD
the 'CPU' is actually either the Northbridge or Southbridge processor. this is what controls the motherboard. (like audio, graphics, memory, etc.) great pictures! i hope that you get the patch!
Ahh, that is interesting, thank you for telling me that. Also, I don't care if I get a patch or not, I had fun doing this. :-) Besides, patches goes away after a month.
Fantastic!!!!! Your camera sees better then I do (maybe you can come photograph all my components that I use to make things - those that are too small for me to read even with a magnifier, so I can use those components LOL ;-)
Wow, the pic of the RGB LED is really interesting! Keep up the good work Plas!
Thanks man!
These photos <em>have</em> been entered in the contest, and gain bonus kudos for the entry method.<br/>
W00t! Thanks kiteman! will try add in some more photos of a cleaner motherboard when I get more time.
