Synertek got the mask sets from MOS, and they only changed things in the periphery, probably because they had a different silicon process (they resized the resistors, for example). Electrically they will behave slightly differently, but no single individual chip is the same anyway, and they should be within spec too. > I know some of the later CMOS incarnations did not have the same > behaviour with undefined op-codes but a) this a 1984 chip and b) I > can't believe the PET kernal would use them anyway. There are only two undefined ops that depend on analog behaviour ($8b and $ab from the top of my head), and those certainly aren't used in the kernal. > It is also possible that this chip is just duff of course. _Something_ is broken, sure :-) It would be interesting to find out what it is. Since it sounds like your box is sort-of working, you could run some test programs? Segher Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-04-11 01:00:05
