**ECL Subfamilies**

The first monolithic emitter coupled logic family was introduced by ON Semiconductor, formerly a division of Motorola, with the MECL-I series of devices in 1962, with the MECL-II series following it up in 1966. Both these logic families have become obsolete. Currently, popular subfamilies of ECL logic include MECL-III (also called the MC 1600 series), the MECL-10K series, the MECL-10H series and the MECL-10E series (ECLinPS and ECLinPSLite). The MECL-10K series further divided into the 10 100-series and 10 200-series devices.
