Hi Bill,

Sorry no MicroPac :-(. Thanks for writing about PCS:

Did you find any more about these systems please?

John

PS according to http://www.acromag.com/xembedded?gclid=CPzLqe7gl7sCFQHHtAod5V8A3A Acromag bought out what used to be Xycom in May 2012. So quite a bit of a history trail.

PPS See https://www.linkedin.com/ profile for Rick Barnich (registration required). This leads to:
http://www.google.com/patents/USD246368 which I think is MicroPac 80 and
http://www.google.com/patents/USD247779 which I think is SuperPac 180

No I have no more info but I did speak with Rick Barnich on the phone for about an hour about his system and the history of the 8080 processor.

I did find more about the RCA Microkit, also mentioned on this page, here:
