I've no direct experience with these,  but have heard of "GAL" chips,  sort of 
like "PAL" chips is about all that comes to mind offhand.

This one I can pretty well identify.  Motorola had already used their 4000 
series numbers on some earlier TTL stuff so they couldn't use them after the 
4000 series CMOS parts came out,  therefore they tacked a 1 in front of the 
number.  By any other maker that'd be a 4034.  I'm pretty sure my parts pages 
have data on that one.  (Try

Got three DVDs full of datasheets here,  I'm updating and organizing as fast 
as I can,  as time permits.  :-)
