   10: NetBSD/sun3 is the port of NetBSD to the Sun Microsystems
   11: **sun3**, and **sun3x** series of computers, which are based on the Motorola
   12: [68020](http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MC68020)
   13: and [68030](http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MC68030)
   14: CPUs respectively, with a Sun-designed custom MMU.
   15: Sun sold these computers as both servers and desktop workstations from
   16: the mid to late 1980's. They were superseded by the **sun4** SPARC RISC systems,
   17: which are supported by NetBSD as [[NetBSD/sparc|sparc]].
