6502....

does anyone know what kind of things the 65c02 or 6502 chip was used for besides computers, or does anyone have a list?

Honeywell

Honeywell uses them in their XLS H/V/AC controllers. They also use them in their fire alarm panels. The things are clocked about 3MHz iirc. With a total of 16KB's on their earlier model. I think it was upped to 24KB and then they replaced them with the XLS-5000 and use the 68000(68K) processors with 128KB's memory. My dad programs these things and they are a PITA to work with in that small memory. Who says that 'tight programming habits' aren't alive today?

actually they were used as di

actually they were used as disk controllers, too (for commodore at least) but I guess that still counts as a computer.

Consoles

Both the Atari 2600 and the Nintendo Entertainment System used processors based off of the 6502.
