I followed the link to CPU Shack in hopes of finding a TMS9900, the processor that started my career.  Lo and behold, it was discussed, along with plenty of photos, in the two most recent blog entries.  It was a nice trip down memory lane.

Processor envy a thing of the past...

There isn't a lot of distinction between processors these day unless you are running realy demanding software, at least not when compared to when we went from 8088, to the 80286, then on to the 80386.  Intel inside has run and hidden..

One of the most mysterious Intel CPUs....BTW, Intel arguably made the first DSP, although TI made the first sucessful ones....

Intel 80186 and 80286 posters

I used to have color posters of the Intel 80186 and 80286 IC layouts, probably the last mainstream processors for which you could print a poster-size checkplot and still see some detail.  I think I still have one of the posters somewhere.
