Steve Golson was one of the first employees at General Computer. He did the hardware design for their first product, Super Missile Attack: an enhancement kit for the Atari arcade game Missile Command. He also designed the hardware for their second product: an enhancement kit for Pac-Man. This eventually became the arcade game Ms. Pac-Man, the biggest-selling arcade game in US history.
Since then Steve worked on many projects for General Computer, including the Maria graphics chip for the Atari 7800 ProSystem, and a high-performance workstation CPU (never produced). After leaving GCC in 1986, Steve started a consulting business, Trilobyte Systems, which offers engineering services in IC design and patent analysis. He lives in Carlisle, Massachusetts.
