  • editor's comments:- Fairchild no longer makes memory chips.

    PS - 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).
