R12000 California License Plate (Darkfield)

This California license plate was found on the MIPS R12000 microprocessor that will power many Silicon Graphics workstations and servers at the beginning of the new millennium. The date on this license plate is July 1997, the month and year that the mask was designed. Note the nice detail present on the palm trees and the California sunset located between the last two "0's" of the number on the license plate.
