Over the years I have been lucky enough to pick up some 68k systems that that had accelerators installed: two MacPlus machines with Novy Quik30 Plus accelerators and a SE FDHD with a Mobius 030 SE accelerator. As I dug around the internet looking for information I found a lot of of advertisements, reviews, and some manuals and drivers for various accelerators, I also found some contact names that I used to track down old employees through LinkedIn (with some success), so I decided to create this post to track what companies I’ve found information about. I plan to list all companies that made 68k accelerators and PowerPC accelerators for 68k machines, with the list linking to additional pages that provide details of the company and their products as I have time.

A lot of the old Macintosh and other electronics I play with as a hobby were long gone before the internet or before the way back machine started archiving the internet in late 1996. Luckily a lot of old computer magazines and documentation can now be found and searched through on the internet archive or on google books. I’ve created this page to help me track my sources, and useful searches that I use for creating this site.
