AMD used 91xx for RAM, 92xx for mask ROM (with a couple of exceptions),
and >97xx for EPROM. AM9217 is an NMOS 2048 x 8-bit ROM; A is the
speed >(550ns), P means 24-pin plastic, C means commercial temperature
range (0-70 >Celcius). Pinout is the same as an 8316, 2716 compatible, but
the chip >selects on pins 18,20,21 can be specified either active-high or
active-low. > The AM9217 was superceded in the late 70's by the AM9218.

does that help?
