Fairchild version still in use in F-15's AFAIK, JOVIAL has a MIL-SPEC number.


ACK. Built to MIL-T-FP41 specs, hopefully...


Hey Bill!

Spare us non-americans who dont understand your codes :) Although my country is part of NATO and some of us try to have wider understanding of things, yet things are not always easy to understand when you are using so many codes :))))


Not saying that you should stop this. Just provide more explanation with them so we can learn something new :)

MIL-T-FP41 = Make It Like The Fscking PRINT For Once!

The rest is a bit of silicon history ... an early 8-bit CMOS CPU that could be clocked all the way down to DC, i.e. static technology, inherently able to 'sleep' in any state w/o refresh. Needless to say, also needed static RAM (or magnetic core...) ;-)
