- editor's comments:- Fairchild no longer makes memory chips.
when I was a young engineer in the 1970s Fairchild was famous for having
begotten that upstart Intel. And Fairchild was still marketing ECL (an ultra
fast differential signal bipolar logic technology which was used in mainframes
until MOS LSI killed it off - due to better logic density and and lower power
per equivalent complex circuit - in the late 1980s).
