Heritage Data books!

  1. hi,

    Pile of data books in search of a good home...

    I have a collection of perhaps 80 or 100 data books for various
    logic, CPU and DSP devices and device families, mostly dating
    from around 1988-1994 but with a few earlier and later than this.

    Don't expect them to be any use for real day-to-day work;
    they describe devices almost all of which are entirely obsolete.

    Some are real curiosities - the first and, I think, only data book
    for Crosspoint FPGAs, for example. Others are more mundane:
    Philips 74FTTL and suchlike. With a heavy heart, I now think
    it's time to part with them. I had dreams of settling down and
    writing some kind of history of the development of logic design
    over the 1970-2000 period, but by the time I have enough
    leisure to do it I suspect I won't have the skill or stamina.

    So, they're yours if you can offer them a loving home and
    can work out with me how to get them from south-east
    England to you without it costing me anything.

    cheers

  2. Hi Jonathan,

    Do you have a list or good enough picture somewhere on the web? I'd like to
    have a peek and see if there's anything I'd like (if you don't mind
    splitting up the collection). Would paying shipment by Paypal work for you?

    Alvin.

    There's always ebay. I suspect you might have one or two books in the
    collection that someone might want for nostalgia or something. I tossed
    my collection dating from about the same time period...including that
    same crosspoint data book...a few years ago when I was remodeling my
    office. I did save a few books like the TRW data book with DSP
    components, a hardcover 1976 Signetics data book and a few others that I
    had a particular attachment to. I reduced four full bookcases of
    outdated data books to half a shelf worth. Mine went to the recycling
    center.
     
  4. I'll post a complete list as soon as I get back home on Thursday.
