<The PIC is a lot older than most people think - I seem to recall that the
<16C54 was first produced by GI (before they became Microchip) in about
<1979. Of course there have been many new devices since then.
Earlier and it was the cp1600 series (I think '77). GI was heavy in the
embedded market then and used in the intellivison game to name one. I
knew of them as they were down the block from me when I lived on LI(NY).
