maybe it was sorted under the TI-99/8 on WHT because the first extra topic here for it was tagged with "99/8" on the top.
So I sorted it into my 99/8 folder too
But finally, what is "Hombre", and where can I store that ?
It was TI's working name for the .6", wide 40-pin GAL which scooped up the discrete logic chips of the TI-99/4A (well, most anyway - still ran out of I/O pins ).
Later, marked CD40050 in some documents and finally stenciled CF40050 on the TI-99/4A QI motherboard after it went to production.
As to being in the pipeline/timeline development wise concurrently with the EVPC, TI-99/7, TI-99/8 support GALs Vaquerro - CF40063, Pollo - CF40064, Oso - CF40065, Mofetta - CF40066, et al?
I'm going to ASSUME from historical documents (and by this numbering convention) that once TI realized a cost reduction in their new-found GAL mask production of relatively large chips, this became the would-be future as they envisioned it.
