Usually I'm asking about weird NatSemi chips, but this is one I can help with,
I have it documented in a 1976 NS TTL databook. I'll communicate with the OP to
try to get info to him. The 8552 has some other unusual features to support zero-blanking.
(..always happy to talk about electronic counters, just yesterday I got an HP
1957 functioning, after two weeks of cleaning it up.
It's a boat anchor, but it's tube digital (84 tubes). (But it's probably OT for
