I know C= made static PETs with 2316s and 2114s, but I've never seen one.
All the chiclet-keyboard PETs I've personally laid hands on had 6540s and
6550s.  Does anyone have any sort of stats for how many static PETs were
made after the switch?   And didn't C= offer 8K dynamic PETs for a short
time?  (16 x 4Kbit DRAMs)

In other words, about how many of the later static PETs were made compared
to the earlier ones?
