NeXT Stations

NeXTstation 68040 25Mhz

NeXTstation 68040 33Mhz Mono Turbo

The NeXTstation computer is the most affordable NeXT computer available. It offers unprecedented performance at an affordable price. The NeXTstation is ideal either as a standalone system or connected to a network.

The engineers at NeXT have pioneered a variety of new technologies to create the high-performance NeXTstation. At the heart of the computer is a Motorola 68040 CPU, running at 25 MHz. It is part of a system architecture that also includes a Motorola 56001 DSP and an Integrated Channel Processor invented at NeXT. The NeXTstation provides exceptional system throughput and performance.

The NeXTstation includes 8 MB of main memory, which can be expanded to an impressive 32 MB. It offers the latest in floppy disk technology; our 3.5-inch floppy disk drive stores 2.88 MB of information and can also read from and write to 1.44 MB and 720 KB DOS-formatted disks. The 105 MB internal hard disk drive that comes with the computer is preloaded with NeXT system software; a 340 MB hard disk is available as an option. High-performance Ethernet capabilities are built in – the computer offers both thin and twisted-pair Ethernet.

Product Details

68040 Processor

The 68040 is a fast and highly integrated microprocessor with a clock speed of 25 MHz. The 68040 contains 1.2 million transistors, more than any other microprocessor in its class. The incredible number of transistors is required because the 68040 is actually four chips in one – a central processing unit, a floating point unit, a paged memory management unit, and 8 kilobytes of cache memory.

The system clock speed is identical to the CPU bus speed, providing an average execution time per instruction of 1.3 clock cycles.

There are two 4-kilobyte memory caches, one for data, the other for instructions, along with burst mode read and write-back caching for improved data transfers.

56001 DSP

Built into the NeXTcube’s design is the 56001 DSP, a 25 MHz digital signal processor. With 24 K of static RAM cache, upgradable to 96 K, the DSP is dedicated to the task of handling digital signals – such as sound – at exceptional speeds.

The DSP is capable of generating compact-disc-quality sound: 44.1 kHz sampling rate with 16-bit resolution and full stereo.

Other uses for the DSP range from receiving still and video images to a variety of other data transmission and acquisition activities.

Network Support

Built-in networking, both thin and twisted-pair Ethernet ports are designed into all NeXT computers.

Network software and administrative tools are preloaded on all hard drives to simplify connecting to virtually any network, with no additional cards to purchase, install, or configure.

DMA Architecture

NeXT computers were designed to handle the most complex tasks efficiently. Rather than emulating a traditional PC or workstation architecture, NeXT systems used a direct memory access (DMA) architecture similar to that of mainframe computers for off-loading I/O functions from the CPU to the peripheral controller (PC) chip to maximize system throughput.

NeXTbus Expansion Slots

NeXTbus provides a multiplexed 32-bit address and data bus on a single Euro-DIN 96-pin connector.

NeXTbus architecture runs at 25 MHz and can support data transfer rates of up to 100 MB per second in burst mode.

NeXTbus is self-configuring: cards can be plugged into any slot and the system will automatically identify and configure each card.

RAM Configurations

NeXTcubes are currently available in 16, 32, or 64 MB RAM configurations.

RAM upgrades can be added incrementally in four-SIMM increments up to 64 MB of RAM.

Parity memory is also an option and can be ordered on a select number of configurations.


SCSI is an expandable high-performance interface for connecting NeXTcubes to hard disks and other peripherals, such as the NeXT Color Printer, NeXT CD-ROM Drive, scanners, and other devices. Up to seven SCSI peripherals (including the internal hard disks) can be connected.

SCSI data transfer rates are up to 4.8 Mbytes per second (SCSI-I implementation).

A SCSI-II-type connector was used on NeXTcubes to provide high data reliability in CPU-to-peripheral connection.

Sound I/O

NeXT computers have been designed to accept and process sound.

Using the built-in microphone in the MegaPixel Display or an external microphone, voice messages can be easily added to electronic mail or used to annotate applications.


Based on the industry’s first object-oriented system software, NEXTSTEP offers an elegant graphical user interface and one of the most productive development environments available today.


NeXT’s operating system is based on the Mach UNIX kernel developed at Carnegie Mellon University, which features shared memory, fast interprocess communication, multitasking, and network support.

NeXT’s UNIX is compatible with UNIX 4.3 BSD (Berkeley Software Distribution).

Display PostScript

NeXT offers a unified imaging model, Display PostScript, for imaging on both the screen and printer.

Bundled Software

Each NeXTcube ships with an unprecedented amount of end-user and development software including:

The NeXTcube computer is the expandable NeXT computer for people who need maximum configuration flexibility in mass storage and memory. It can also be used as a server on a network.

The NeXTcube offers a tremendous amount of power and performance – all in a one-foot magnesium cube. It uses the powerful Motorola 68040 CPU and Motorola 56001 DSP. As your needs change, you can add more memory. You can also add up to three boards to the NeXTcube, simply by plugging them into the NeXTbus. For instance, you might consider adding a NeXTdimension color board.
