A microprocessor released shortly after the Intel 8080, in about 1975. It had 78 instructions, including the undocumented HCF (Halt and Catch Fire) bus test instruction. The 6800 evolved into the Motorola 6801 and 6803.
The 6502 was based on the design of the 6800 but had one less data register and one more index register.
- Motorola 68000
processor (MC68000) The first member of Motorola, Inc.’s family of 16- and 32-bit microprocessors. The successor to the Motorola 6809 and followed by the Motorola 68010. The 68000 has 32-bit registers but only a 16-bit ALU and external data bus. It has 24-bit addressing and a linear address space, with none of the evil segment […]
- Motorola 6801
processor (And 6803) A version of the Motorola 6800 with ROM, some RAM, a serial I/O port and other functions on the chip. It was meant for embedded controllers, where the part count was to be minimised. The 6803 led to the 68HC11 and that was extended to 16 bits as the 68HC16. (1994-11-07)
- Motorola 68010
processor A microprocessor from Motorola. It was the successor to the Motorola 68000 and was followed by the Motorola 68020. Some instructions which were previously user mode were made system mode, which necessitated patches to a few programs. The 68010’s main advantage over the 68000 was that it could recover from a bus fault. The […]
- Motorola 68020
processor A microprocessor from Motorola. It was the successor to the Motorola 68010 and was followed by the Motorola 68030. The 68020 has 32-bit internal and external data and address buses and a 256-byte instruction buffer, arranged as 64 direct-mapped 4-byte entries[?]. The 68020 added many improvements to the 68010 including a 32-bit ALU and […]
