7.12 BUS SNOOPING OPERATION
The MC68060 has the capability of monitoring bus transfers by other bus masters. The pro-
cess of bus monitoring is called snooping and is controlled by the SNOOP signal.
Snooping can occur when the bus is granted to another bus master, and the MC68060 sees
a TS assertion by the alternate master. If SNOOP is asserted, the processor registers the
value of the A31–A0 and TT1 signals on the rising edge of BCLK in which TS is asserted.
