That's probably the Winbond W89K PA-RISC Embedded Controller chip, which
was released around 7/1994. The chip is a level 0 implementation of
PA-RISC 1.1 (revision 3). It is pinout compatible with a 80486DX
chip, so you can put it into the 486 socket of a pc clone ... and replace
the BIOS chips with BIOS chips from Winbond ... voila! a PA-RISC
development system.

Level 0 implementation means that there is *NO* virtual addressing ...
everything operates in real mode :(

For more information, contact Winbond at: (408) 943-6666 (fax: (408) 943-6668).
