It's a so-called "keyboard BIOS" chip - really a microcontroller to speak AT-keyboard protocol to a PC-AT|PS/2 keyboard with a parallel interface for the PC side. Once standalone, long since folded into PC motherboard "chipsets", and as Konrad B mentioned it's an MCS/48 family MCU. An ancestor is the Intel 8048. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_MCS-48 -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2017-07-18 22:00:02
