D/A converter ISL5729/2IN component marking questions

I have some Intersil ISL5729/2IN components I am trying to decode the part marking , Lot Date Code and Assembly site,

The marking on the component is as follows:

"I logo"




Does anybody know how to decode the P731BT5 code?

  • P is the factory location code, 731 is the date code (parts were built the 31st week of 2007) and BT5 is a trace code. All 7 make up the complete trace code which identifies the manufacturing lot the parts were built from.

  • Hi, Do you happen to know which factory is associated with the "P" location?  I know "G" is the Carsem M-Site, "F" is the Carsem S-Site, "L" is Amkor Philippines, "N" is Amkor Korea, "H" is STATS Chipac Malaysia, "U" is ASECL Taiwan, "V" is Wuxi China....  Cant find where "P" factory is located.

  • The factory code "P" is STATS ChipPAC, Shanghai, China. The document containing our factory location codes is company confidential and not published on our website.

  • Hi, Thanks for the info,  I was able to find the other codes from PCN's mostly written by Jon Brewster online.  Is it possible for you to tell me if that complete trace code, "P731BT5" is a real code that matches product produced by Intersil in the past? 

  • Please Submit a Technical Support Inquiry You will need to provide proof of purchase from one of our authorized distributors. Otherwise we cannot provide the information you are requesting.

  • this part has been obsolete since October 2011, it is not available from any authorized distributor that I can find.  If you have any for sale, please let me know...

  • Rochester Electronics is our only authorized distributor of our obsolete parts and their website is not showing they have any remaining stock. We (Intersil - now part of Renesas) do not stock this part.

  • I understand, I have been working this issue for several weeks.  and I am familiar with the issues of procuring components outside of the OEM authorized distribution network.  I also understand OEM reluctance to assist in any broker part authentication activities.  My company does not purchase broker parts, however we have 3rd tier suppliers that do.  I also know that Intersil is a fan favorite supplier for counterfeiters due to the unique nature of the products and lack of interchangeability.  There is a paper written by Yong Hong in the 2011 ISTFA proceedings I think you would be very interested in.
