A SINGLE-CHIP 16b microprocessor with 13,000 transistors will be described. It both implements the instruction set of an existing minicomputer family, and interfaces with common industry LSI memories and I/O. Other 16b microprocessors differ by involving large die size, multiple chips, special busses, and/or new instruction sets. In developing this project attention was paid to design methodology which included effective control architecture, layout simultaneously orderly and compressed, effective speed/power…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
