History question: Does anybody know the AD141

Any history experts hanging around here? Does anybody know what the AD141 is?

Maybe a datasheet?

G*****  comes up completely empty for that module's name.....

 

I think I have one. The logo is still the same... On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that after the '141 someone said: "Hey, lets use the graphics on the '141 as the logo".

 

I think "141" sounds like a predecessor of the 741 that everybody knows. And apparently the 141 is the corner-piece in the numbering scheme. Wikipedia tells me the '101 came out in 1969. That would make it logical that the 111, 121, 131, and 141 came after that, and that the 241 etc were the improvements over the 141.

 

I'm guessing 1973 for the AD141. Anybody who can confirm or refute any of my guesswork?

 

P.S. Took me 20 minutes to get this posted: I kept getting the message "this cannot be posted". After guessing that I used a "forbidden word" , a binary search revealed that the search engine whose name starts with a G is considered bad manners here.....
