Description

The die photo in the file above is the first MOS Micromosaic developed for a paying customer. The 250-gate device that can perform "a series of combinatorial logic functions" is on an 80-by-80-mil chip. GE paid Fairchild $12,000 to develop the array that will sell for $60 per chip for the first 100 and about $44 thereafter. Source: Electronics, September 2, 1968. Donated by Bill Bennett.
