Abstract: 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…
