Why does coating come off of AMD parts?

Question asked by janet@ctg on Jun 3, 2015

Have two AMD parts, AM79C874VI and AM29F010B-70EF, which failed the industry standard resurfacing test using acetone.  The coating on both parts comes right off, which could be indicative of a suspect counterfeit device.  One has a die marked with AMD logo and Altima COM and the other with Fujitsu.  I know AMD and Fujitsu have a licensing agreement.  Can you shed any light on whether AMD remarks the devices and if the media used is known to be removed with solvents?  Thank you for any help you can offer.
