    Default Wanted: 68882 (PGA type)

    Hi all,

    I need one of these & it must be capable of running at 50mhz (the speed my Blizzard runs at).

    Please give me some prices here so I can figure out if it's within my price range

    PZ.

    Hi m8y,

    Here's hoping you are aware, you have more chance of finding tits on a bull than this 68882 package!?
    I have only seen one in the last 12 months & it was a 40Mhz one which was clocked to 50Mhz.

    Wish you all the luck in the world though.

    68882s are not "clocked" to any speed. They are all manufactured to run on 50MHz and tested at 100MHz. If they failed that test, they were tested at 80MHz (for the 40MHz versions) and so forth. Some official guy from Motorola once said this, though I can't find a link to that story right now....


    So, basically, if you find a 40MHz version it won't cause you any trouble when you run it at 50MHz (but you can always add a cooling aid if you want to be sure).

    @ McVenco

    Not true. Not ALL will go to 50Mhz speeds. They are soak-tested & then binned @ whatever speed they are able to achieve. There are failures along the way, so they get binned @ the Lower speeds when proven stable @ said speed.

    Their approved speeds are then stamped on the Die.

    Yeah, the website lists them as in stock, but I just don't trust SoftHut...something about their website & the fact that they always leave out-of-stock items on there for years

    Found a 40mhz unit at Ebay
    This should be OK at 50mhz?

    To whoever modified my post above this one:

    I know linking to evilBay is against the rules...but surely it doesn't matter if the sale linked to has already ended? :P

    Anyway, it is an MC68882RC40A
