Multiclet MCp0411100101 : Weekend die-shot

Multiclet - basically is a superscalar processor (4-wide at present) with out-of-order execution. 100 Mhz clock, 180nm tech. node, designed in Russia.
Die size - 10.2x10.2 mm.

After metallization etch (warning, high-resolution image might kill your browser):

SRAM cell size - 21.28 ┬Ám2. So, each of 16 memory blocks contains 72 Kibit of SRAM. Apparently ECC codes are used (72,64). Total accessible memory - 128 KiB.

Autosynthesized standard cell logic:

Test areas were cut with the crystal (resolution test):
