Thank you for the correction. These were all memories that I hadn't thought
about since the late 70's. Looking at the data book scans, the 1640 existed
well before I spent any time there. I did remember the Glenrothes connection
but not much more of the details. The point was that the designers weren't
very likely to have any connection with a west coast company (SMS).
This all was my first exposure to IC fab and design. Pretty interesting stuff for
a kid like me who grew up in rural Wisconsin..
