I rememebr an article in 'Computing Today' magazine _many_ years ago, I 
would guess around 1980. It was to add a second SC/MP to the Science of 
Cambridge MK14, so that you could, for example, run the monitor program 
on one chip and a user program on the other.

>From what I remember, you ended up soldering the 2 SC/MP on top of each 
other with a couple of pins bent out and not directly conencted. There 
was a bit of scrossed-over wiring to get the arbitration chain right, and 
a swich to disable the second processor wired to on of the pins. That was 
about it. No otehr chips were involved.
