  1. Hi,

    A customer of ours wants to know when the 68332 processor which we use
    in their product was first introduced to the market and I've been
    unable to find an answer.

    I know that I used a 16MHz part in a design in late 1992, I have an
    instruction manual for a development board dated May 1992, and I've
    found a paper data book for the chip itself with a copyright date of
    1990 (but no version number), however we were hoping to narrow it down
    a bit better than that.

    I'm hoping someone out there used it when it first came out and can
    remember when that was.

    Can anyone help?

    LEAD: Motorola Inc. introduced a new family of chips for computer control of
    automobiles and electronic appliances.

    The new 68332 microcontroller is based on the 68020 microprocessor used in some
    personal computers and work stations."

  3. Hi,
    That's brilliant, thanks. Believe it or not both I and the customer had
    tried several Google searches and failed to find anything.

    I've found it all hinges on the keywords you enter.
