The Apple II computer developed by the late Steve Jobs used the original 6502 8-bit microprocessor developed by MOS Technology in Norristown in 1975, said Dennis Silage, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Temple. MOS Technology was the only company that would ship chips to Jobs and partner Steve Wozniak because they were essentially operating Apple Computers out of a garage, said Silage. An original Apple IIe is part of the "Computer Museum" in Silage's System Chip Design Lab.
