Understanding Identifying markings on WDC IC products
General Understanding of Date Coding:
Many manufactures include date codes on ICs to indicate when they were produced. These usually consist of the last two digits of the year plus two additional digits. The two additional digits most generally represent the week or month the IC was manufactured, depending on the company a code like “9501” could indicate the IC was made during the first week of 1995. These dates have very little meaning to the effectiveness of the parts performance to the general public. The importance of this information relates to the manufacturer as a way to identify runs of products which may contain abnormally high percentages of defects or other problems.
