Hum there were digital ethernet chips called

DC21040
DC21041
DC21140
DC21142
DC21143

Many of these were cloned ad nauseum after digital went phut.

I've never come across a 20164 however it might have been one that digital didn't sell to other people.

BTW I like the fact that half the external links at the bottom of the Wikipedia article on the Alpha point to RWT :)
