The original first-generation m88k CPU, introduced in 1989 and used in many workstation
and server systems.
Available with up to 33 MHz clock rates.
The second generation m88k processor, unveiled in 1990 and shipped only in 1993 after many delays.
Clock rates from 40 to 50 MHz, costing from $360 to $495 in 1000-unit quantities.
Planned, much-improved third-generation processor, never saw the light of the day though.
Support processor to the 88100 CPU, providing management of the cache and MMU units.
The cache was attached to this chip, not the actual CPU.
L2 cache controller for the 88110 second-generation processor.
- MVME180 and MVME181
Stripped down versions of the MVME187 board.
Used partially in embedded functions.
Single-Board Computer, first system to faciliate a m88k CPU, namely the 88100.
Used in many systems from Motorola and 3rd-party verndors.
- MVME188 and MVME188A
SMP-capable MVME processing boards, only provide CPU and cache functions.
Up to four 88100 CPUs were supported on some models.
Successor to the MVME187, already using the new 88110 second-generation CPU.
- MVME197SP and MVME197DP
Improved versions of the MVME197LE, facilitating L2 caches of different sizes.
The DP featured 2-way 88110 SMP.
Memory expansion boards for the different MVME197 systems.
I/O boards which attached to the back of MVME boards and provided the necessary
different I/O connectors.
