NM27C520 512K EPROM integrates an 8-bit address latch on the chip and fits into a single 20-pin, Small Outline Integrated Circuit package. The board-space requirement is reduced to about one-sixth of what is required for a standard 512K EPROM footprint, and a latch circuit eliminates the need for a second chip on board. Data sheets describe the product and its features. A functional product description and charts on programming and electrical characteristics are also included.

Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
