A 32-bit microprocessor from Motorola, the successor to the Motorola 68040. The 68060 is the highest performance 680×0 family processor currently (April 1995) available. It has 2 to 3 times the performance of the 68040.
The 68060 is probably the last development from Motorola in the high performacnce 680×0 series. They don’t want to compete with their own PowerPC chips. The 680×0 series is intended more for embedded systems, where it is already very popular. New developments here seem to integrate more peripheral functions on chip rather than increasing processing power.
- Motorola 6809
(MC6809) An eight-bit microprocessor from Motorola, Inc. The 6809 was a major advance over both its predecessor, the Motorola 6800 and also over the 6502. The 6809 had two 8-bit accumulators, rather than one in the 6502, and could combine them into a single 16-bit register. It also featured two index registers and two stack […]
- Motorola 680×0
processor Shorthand for any member for the Motorola 68000 family of microprocessors from Motorola, Inc. The “x” stands for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 6. (1993-05-01)
- Motorola 68hc11
processor A microcontroller family from Motorola descended from the Motorola 6800 microprocessor. The 68HC11 devices are more powerful and more expensive than the 68HC05 family. FAQ (ftp://src.doc.ic.ac.uk/usenet/usenet-by-group/comp.answers/microcontroller-faq/68hc11). There is an opcode simulator for the 68HC11, by Ted Dunning email@example.com. Interrupts, hardware I/O, and half carries are still outside the loop. Adding interrupts may require simulating […]
- Motorola 68lc040
processor A version of the Motorola 68040 with no MMU or FPU, making it more like an enhanced Motorola 68020. A Power Macintosh can emulate a Motorola 68LC040. (1999-01-11)
