They were very helpful to me. But cost is on the high side till you factor in
the low volume they probably have. I would be interested in your old HP stuff

I've just sent for a "quote" for one off. The site simply sucks! There is
NO information as to how to get your hands on a small sample, a breakout
board, or anything else that a design engineer would need to make a
decision...You can get some software and data sheets, or what looks to be
a horribly expensive test box.
I was thinking this chip might make a useful replacement for my 5370A
units in my mad race to replace all the '80's and earlier HP stuff with PC
