The F-16 Electronics Unit was based on a powerful general purpose computer using MSI TTL technology. It contains a MIL-STD-1553 data bus interface, processor and symbol generator. Data can be received in analogue form but the digital databus significantly reduces the number of data lines. Development of small RISC processors had continued within ADD and FARL and the F-16A/B emerged with a solid state 16K 16-bit store in what was basically a 12/16 RISC implementation. By 1980 the EU memory had more than doubled giving a highly capable processor.
