Tasmanian Devil

Tasmanian Devil

We discovered the Tasmanian Devil devouring transistors, buses, registers and just about everything else in his path on an Analog Devices ADSP-2105 digital signal processor integrated circuit. This character, created by Robert McKimson, is capable of destroying anything as he moves about in tornado-like gyrations across the surface of the chip. It is a good thing we found him before he trashed all of the circuitry.
