      Did some research

      The RCA CDP 1801 8-bit microprocessor was originally called COSMAC, but the name was changed to CDP at or around 1975. RCA put out the 1802 later.

      The RCA division that manufactured the 1801 was
      RCA Solid State Div
      Route 202
      Somerville, NJ 08876

      There was a COSMAC Microkit computer in 1975. Never seen one.

      Unfortunately, Mr. Weisbecker is deceased.
