Rockwell 6809 uP? I didn't know Rockwell made a 6809.

Found this on Wiki:

Second sources
A common requirement for manufacturing companies was to require two or more sources
for every part in the products they made. This ensured they could get parts if a
supplier had financial problems or a disaster. Initially Motorola selected American
Microsystems Inc (AMI) as a second source for the M6800 family. Hitachi, Fujitsu,
Fairchild, Rockwell and Thomson Semiconductors were added later.

Rochester Electronics was Authorized by Freescale/Motorola in 2014 to continue
manufacturing any of the 8-bit peripherals and 8-bit processors of this era.
Rochester specializes in fully authorized device duplication.


I've seen Hitachi and Thomson, Knew about Rochester (might have purchased a few)
but I didn't know about the rest
