I worked in the semiconductor industry for over 30 years and KNOW how chips are manufactured. Before the chips are encapsulated in plastic or whatever covering is used, the production operator injects a small amount of smoke into the device. This smoke is like the life blood of the unit and if for some reason it escapes, it's NOT a good thing. If the smoke is let out the device it usually becomes non-functional. Letting the smoke out can be caused by a number of reasons.
