The 6800 microprocessor from Motorola was the 8-bit counterpart to the Intel type 8080.
The 6800, introduced in 1974, could address up to 64 KB ofmemory with its 16-bit wide address bus. The clock rate was 1 MHz and 2 MHz. It had a CISC architecture (68xx) and an instruction set with 72 instructions, which was not compatible with the Intel instruction sets. The 6800 built in LSI technology had 4,000 transistors and was housed in a dual inline package.
