I have an issue with the BMA253. Out of 20 units, 20 do not seem to be functioning and I would like to verify by the device marking that the part is/was a valid part. The marking currently on the chip is:
I would appreciate it if someone could verify that the marking is valid or provide further documentation to explain exactly what the marking means in terms of date produced and product number.
According to BMA253 datasheet, the first character on the second row of the laser marking must be letter "U". For example, the valid laser marking for BMA253 will be "SYN US" or "272 UB", etc. for example.
The laser marking of "2BA 8A" is actually BMA250 10-bit accelerometer with technical reference code of 0 273 141 121". BMA250 has been discontinued a few years ago. I am not sure where you purchased these parts.
