EPROM of the Week: Electronic Arrays – EA2708

Electronic Arrays was born in the late 60’s back in the time of many start-ups (which mostly trace their roots back to Fairchild)  EA attempted to make a CPU called the EA9002, but production problems kept them from going anywhere with it.  They made EPROM’s likely to keep them afloat (and only 8k ones at that).
