A series of products by Motorola that consists of a motherboard and various plug-in modules for different CPUs and I/O modules. The motherboard connects to a terminal or host computer through a RS-232 serial port. This system provides a low cost evaluation platform for developing software and hardware for M68K family members. The Product Brief part is M68KIDP/D.

The IDP motherboard is a compact (10.7" x 7.5") printed circuit board. The motherboard is designed to accept any of the M68000 CPU modules and up to five input/output (I/O) modules. Functions provided by the IDP motherboard includes; bus routing and termination, power distribution, bus master and interrupt signal routing, serial and parallel I/O, clock calendar functions, and system memory. The IDP motherboard includes the following hardware features:

  • One CPU Slot (M68000 Family CPU module)
  • Five IDP Bus-Compatible I/O Slots
  • Two RS-232 Serial I/O Channels
  • IBM® PC/AT-Compatible Parallel Printer Port/24-Bit Timer
  • Battery-Backed Clock/Calendar? with 2040 Bytes SRAM
  • Two 32-Pin EPROM Sockets, (Up to 512K x 16 EPROM)
  • Two Mbytes of 5/2/2/2 Burst Mode DRAM
