Just dropped in to check the latest posts and thought people might be interested about the places I've found that a 68000 still crops up.

I'm hoping readers will add their own discoveries...

1. Texas Instruments Voyage 200, TI-92 and other graphical calculators. Contain a 10 Mhz 68000 and appear to have an active assembly language development community (my next purchase :wink:)


These generally retail at about 170 GBP in the UK, although they can be had for a lot less on ebay.

2. Fossil Abacus Palm PDA Watch. Contains (wait for it) a 66 MHz 68000-based dragonball freescale processor running Palm OS 4 with 8MB of memory. How bizarre is that! I got one of the last ones listed on amazon.co.uk for a shade under 40 GBP, although there are other retailers listing them for about 70 GBP. Note that they are firmly to be thought of as a 'gadget' as the battery lasts about 2 days. Kinda cool though to be carrying a 68k round on your wrist.

Any other suggestions?

Are you only interested in pure 68000, or also ColdFire and the like? Some of the versions with Ethernet, etc. built in are used in routers and other network hardware.

InFocus used a Coldfire processor in several digital projectors.

I've seen others, but can't bring them to mind right now.
