Where I'm talking about EA? I'm talking about PC, answering only to your words:

When PC incrementation used? Yes, while opcode fetching wich contains more than one word.
Actually, it may not be PC only. This property can be provided to an output address latch register, the source of address bus. Then, using once calculated EA, we can do sequential access, without additional calculations of EA (eg, DWORD @EA is the WORD @EA and the Word @EA+1, right?).
Talking about number of cycles of opcode (wich described in M68KUM as N(R/W)) youre right.

Very interested

In case there is a collision:


As much as I can tell only shifts can overlap with fetch, but the fact is they wait 6 or 8 cycles to begin working.
Now i'm facing Z80 design, so 68k will be stopped for a while.

Now what I realize is CPUs are a lot simpler that many think. May be bucks make the difference.
