68060 class ICs
68060 information
Successor to the Motorola 68040. The 68060 is the highest performance 680x0 family processor available. It has 2 to 3 times the performance capability of the 68040.

The 68060 was the last development of the 680x0 series for general purpose use, abandoned in favour of the PowerPC chips. It saw use in some late-model Amiga machines, but Apple and the Unix world had moved onto various RISC platforms.

Developments of the basic core continue, intended for embedded systems. Here they are combined with a number of peripheral interfaces to reduce the overall complexity and power requirements of a design. A number of chips, each with different sets of interfaces, are sold under the name ColdFire and Dragonball.

For more information on Motorola 680x0 processors please refer to the M68K FAQ here (text-version) or here (html version) and the USENET group comp.sys.m68k.
