Hi,
I have question for embedded systems veterans:
When did Motorola 6811/12 come into market first?
Was it available since January 1997 to work commercially?
Thanks in advance,
Abhi

The 68HC11 (some members) date(s) from the mid-1980s. The 68HC12 is
much more recent, maybe 1996 or 1997.

IIRC, the 68HC11 arrived around '83-84. I was doing a high-volume project
around then, lusted after the HC11, couldn't afford it, moved on (to the
Hitachi 68301X/Y).

The 68HC12 came along *much* later. Mid 90s?

I seem to remember it being launched in the UK in 86 or 87 with a
design competition whose prize was a Canon AE-1. (which apparently
contained an HC11).

Same here. Only "lusted" would be putting it too strongly.

In '83 I was working in Chicago; I'm pretty sure I saw a preliminary
spec/design article for the chip whilst I was there. My memory may be
playing tricks. (But see Denis's post re EDN - which may well have been what
I saw.)

Heh ;). I enjoyed those... and we shipped an awful lot of them. Did you use
their ICE boards?

Nowadays my CPU family of choice is the H8 - I guess that makes me a
longterm Hitachi man ;).

Nah. Pentica Mime (600? memory failing :) ) Emulator. Not a bad bit of
kit for its time. Apart from the R/~W line being 300ns slow on the
6809/6309 model.

Would you consider scanning these and posting them somewhere for us?
