In the early 1980's, there was a group called ISPUG (International SuperPET 
User's Group) that published the "SuperPET Gazette" newsletter.  A few people 
in that group were reverse engineering the Waterloo software.  I managed to 
contact one of them and asked him about the 6702.  He was not clear on its 
function but agreed it's probably a dongle and remembered finding references 
to it in some floating point routines.

I recently contacted Greg James of and offered him a 6702 for 
die shots.  I heard back from him yesterday and he accepted.  I will send it 
to him and hopefully we can get closer to solving the mystery.
