We tip our hat to the Hackerbot Labs! More and moar.

I used to have to wirebond chips like this one and perform custom surgery like soldering tiny copper wires to the bondwires to make them resonate at different frequencies. The fun part about trying to solder to a gold bondwire is that if you get it too hot, the gold will alloy with the solder and vanish right before your eyes!
