That is what I was hunting for, but I can not seem to
locate a data sheet on that.  

I also thought there was a 100mb version of the DP83905,
but can not seem to locate any data thier either.

Given this lack of findable data I shall continue to support
the ed removal, unless Julian comes up with the needed criteria,
and with holding my own fact that I do have a pile of these
around, but they are not in use and are only retained for
testing and resurection of ancient things.
