14582RE: [midatlanticretro] PROOF!!!Hey, the COSMAC VIP is from NJ
- Oct 1, 2009Did 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
Somerville, NJ 08876
There was a COSMAC Microkit computer in 1975. Never seen one.
