Do you want to interface with SRAM or DRAM? DRAM typically has
multiplexed addresses (address sent in two sequential chunks on same
wires) and so you're going to need some kind of memory controller to
handle that plus refresh for the DRAM.
If you're trying to interface with SRAM that typically just takes a
straight address and does not require refresh, so it's much easier. I've
only done it on the 68HC11 so your app may be different, but it is usually
discussed in the part's User's Guide, so you should download that from
Motorola if you have not already. Oh, and check for any relevant white
papers on the topic as well (AKA Application Notes).
