Most of the big "standard" catalogs will not have anything but much of the
rather plain types. You may have to go to a real distributor to get some
of the parts - of course being subject to massive delays and high prices.

Are both of those chips even still in production? If not, that might be a
real challenge. I remember trying to get one of AMD super neat database
coprocessors, but really felt a great deal of resistance by the sales
people and the distributors.

One note: many sales offices are decent (Motorola), and will look up (and
copy) data for long gone chips.
