As far as I remember, the T426 was a T425 with parity
checking added. A new version of the run-time startup
was written that initialised memory before doing anything
that might cause a parity error. Don't think many were
sold/used, and no other parity-equipped transputers were
made. Don't think parity was used on the links, because
that would have made them incompatible with other
transputers and link adaptors.
