Yeah, whenever we used to de-cap another manufacturer's IC to figure out what went wrong, we would always look around the IC surface to see if they'd left any logos or similar. Every once in a while you might find the project team member names or some interesting symbol... :smile:

If you ever see similar doodles inside some random prototype ASIC, you now know where they came from.
