16 BIT TTL MINICOMPUTER FOR TELEPROCESSING

Date Issued:
1978
Summary:
A 16 bit non-bussed minicomputer design exhibits significant performance advantages over the popular 8080 microcomputer. The design and operation of this device is discussed. Microcoding is employed only where it is a direct replacement for a needed combinatorial function and microcode formats are kept as simple as possible. Since it is anticipated that non-direct addressing will be used extensively in the eventual application of teleprocessing, special hardware is committed to this task. The result is a significant speed advantage over typical address calculating schemes. Additional circuitry is provided to allow rapid subroutine entry, exit, and parameter fetching.
