  1. Recalcitrant hardware. Gotta fix it. It has a 8MHz Motorola 68000 in

    Any suggestions as to good logic analyzers with 68000 suport?
    Budget is kinda tight.


  2. Older hardware calls for older test equipment. You can probably
    find a Tektronix 1240 series on Greed-Bay, or at a ham radio swap meet,
    with minimal effort.

    After that, it's a simple matter to get hold of the EPROM images
    to make the 68000 mnemonics ROM Pack.

    Keep the peace(es).

  3. thanks Sqeeg. I have a Tek 1240 lined up, but I did a web search for
    variations of "68000 pm203 tek* personality module" and no luck.

    Any hints as to where one might find this software ( legally would be
    nice ) ?

    I'd go for a HP 1630D (or 1630G). I spent many an hour poking into
    68k stuff with one. But that was 20 years ago, with the CPU DIP cable,
    the probe adaptor box, and the disassembler (on a micro-cassette).

    See if you can find a G with disk and software.

    If you're just looking to repair hardware and don't need true emulation
    with breakpoints and all, I'd suggest a Fluke 9010 with a 68000 pod.
    Figure it'd cost you about $500 to $600 or so on ebay.
  6. Fluke 9010A with the 68000 pod will do the trick - not a logic
    analyzer, rather a CPU exorcisor (in most respects. I sell these
    (blush) and use them all the time in my shop...have the technical
    manuals on disc as well.
