In the past, I've asked for information on the Weitek [Graphic] Array
Processor. Well, I've located some documentation for it and accompanying
software: WAFT, Weitek Assembler with Flexible Translation, APSIM, Array
Processor SIMulator, and QUAKE :-).

The board has one integer processor (an equivalent of 4 Am2901's + Am2910)
and one floating point processor (2 WTL1066 register files, 1 WTL1032 ALU
and 1 WTL1033 multiplier). Manual claims that performance of this hardware
reaches 8 MFLOPS. Clock frequency is 4 MHz.

I've not found any reference to this product (by name) on the Net. From
comments in source code, it looks like Thomas J. Riordan, Craig Hansen,
and Michael Ekberg were involved in the design of this product.

Does anyone remember this product?

I'll have to verify that hardware is working, but there is a good chance
that it is OK.
