Really? The way I'm reading the datasheet is that STERM is sampled on the next half-clock after AS, and the cycle can be completed on the half-cycle after that, so the total time after AS would be a single cycle.
If you count from ECS, this would be 1.5 cycles. Either way, it's a full cycle less than the fastest access that I have done before. ACA1231 beats the crap out of the B1230-IV, despite almost 20% lower clock rate. So much for "on-chip cache hit rate of the 68030".
