Thanks Al for the heads-up on the datasheets !! Tony, do you think it is
some kind of Manchester / Miller encoder / decoder ? Do we know if it is a
National chip or has it's total identity been wiped ? Maybe Signetics or
Plessey or TI or ?? Where are the power pins ( sometimes that is a good
tell ) ? You mentioned 24 pin skinny DIP ? I'll keep looking. This is for
some type of magnetic disk / floppy media system ?
Pinouts are the same for the AMD 8051 / 8053. Hope that helps.
Best regards, Steven
