That may be possible. I never say any Byte/Interface Age/Kilobaud or
others advertizing much other than the 6502 pr the z80 based versions.

 It was a sufficient depature from all the other systems as it's 12 bit
and the others were all 8bit data and 16bit address which is a tough fit
for a 6100 (12bit data/address) unless the MEDIC was added and then it
was 12data 15 address. the 1802, 2650 and a few otehr were a possible

The GI part someone was been thinking of is the 1600 series. I do have a
copy of Osborne's book _some real microprocessors_.
