9046xN random access write-only memory
MichaelZ tipped us to the 9046 x N Random Access, Write Only Memory:
About 1974, Signetics bought a two-page, full-color spread in the April issue of ELECTRONICS Magazine, and published the WOM data sheet, as a (rather expensive) April Fool’s Joke. This version of the WOM data sheet shows the various features of Signetics’ Model 25120 “fully-encoded, 9046 x N Random Access, Write Only Memory”. This advertisement has been saved, and greatly prized by engineers, for many years. We recently found a copy of this data sheet, in very good shape except for where it had been punched for a 3-ring binder.
