I found my RCA COS/MOS Data book. | Cypress Semiconductor

I found my RCA COS/MOS Data book.

After writing the last post I went looking for my old RCA data book. I found it. It is 1977 vintage and most likely older than most of you readers.
 
Great logic family. Would work with a voltage supply up to 20 volts. It was perfect for running projects on 9Volt batteries. They has buffered (B series) and unbuffered (A series) parts. The outputs were true complementary MOS and they function well as single bit DACs. You could even use them as op amps in a pinch.
Some of the more interesting parts.
 
4016    analog switches. Analog switches at a digital price.
 
I built be first multimeter with them. (Fluke 8051, Fluke’s first micro controller based multimeter.)
 
4066    Lower impedance version of 4016
 
4046    Phase lock loop!
 
4055    LCD Driver
 
4053    analog MUX/DEMUX
 
Of course the parts were slow but then they didn’t emit any EMI. 
 

I felt it was the last digital login family that was designed by analog engineers.
