Encyclopedia > Motorola 68008

The Motorola MC68008 is a 8/16/32-bit microprocessor from the early 1980s. It is an 8-bit bus version of the Motorola MC68000, and can address 1MB or 4MB of memory (using a 48-pin or 52-pin package, respectively).

The original 48-pin package version was used in the Sinclair QL, to make maximum use of inexpensive 8-bit technology on the motherboard while computing internally with the relatively fast 16/32-bit processing engine.

The Motorola 68000 is a CISC microprocessor, the first member of a successful family of microprocessors, which were all mostly software compatible.
Motorola ceased production of the 68000 in 2000, although derivatives, notably the CPU32 family, continue in production.
The Motorola 68901 had a number of severe defects, including the ability to lose the highest-priority interrupt if it and the clock interrupt happened within some window of each other.
