I believe the progression was
MC6800 ==> MC6801/3 ==> MC6811 ==> MC68HC11 ==> HC12
MC6800 ==> MC6809 and then this branch dies here.
The MC6800 gave birth to two lines, the MC6809 and then a linage that
progressed to the MC6801/3 and then to the MC6811/MC68HC11.
The MC68HC11 linage does incorparate the same basic instruction core logic
was the MC6800. The MC6811/HC11 does incorparate a feature that first was
used on the MC6809. That is the instruction modifier feature. On the MC6809
byte is $01 and $10. Often called the "instrruction prebyte" For the HC11
instruction modifier bytes are $18, $1A and $CD. Also the MC6801/3 has an
expanded programming model from its predicessor the MC6800. It also
the first sets of functions that are later expanded in the HC11 series.
