Rare Silicon

Here are data sheets for various rare, vintage ICs. Most of these parts are Solid State Microsystems for Music, Inc. (SSM) chips that were used in a few now-prized analog synthesizers.

You will need Adobe Acrobat in order to view these data sheets. If you don't have a copy, get one here. It's free.

Please Note: I have no more SSM chips for sale, and I have no sources of these parts. Sorry!

Other SSM data sheets may be available (i.e., I haven't gotten around to scanning them). These include: SSM2010, SSM2011, SSM2014, SSM2015, SSM2020, SSM2022, SSM2024, SSM2045, SSM2047, and SSM2056. Write me if you are especially desparate for these data sheets. Some of these parts may also be available.
