Since AMD Flash memory spun off to Spansion and then to Cypress who is part of Infineon I am coming here with a question about how production locations stamped their country on AMD Flash Memory parts in the late 1980s. We received AMD AM9016DL/BFC parts which were supplied by Arrow Electronics back in 1986. Being Arrow only supplies parts received directly from OEMs I expect that the parts are authentic AMD parts. The marking on the bottom of each part is MALAYSIA. This marking located on the bottom is stamped in white ink and is in a slightly different position on each part. Looks like they may be hand stamped, possibly after testing or something. Was this normal for parts produced in 1980s?
