Ferranti F100-L  16 bit Integrated Circuit  c1976

This CPU was one of the first 16-bit microprocessors, and the first to be designed and manufactured in Europe.

The CPU has the ability to operate over a wide temperature range of -55C to +125C and is resistant to the effects of radiation.

Bipolar technology was chosen for it's radiation hardness and it has been shown that the F100-L is almost totally latch-up resistant even after significant doses of radiation.

It is listed by the MOD as being "Nuclear Hard".
