Ferranti F100-L
Jump to user comments
An 8-bit processor, with 16-bit addressing, but which could
only access 32K of memory (1-bit for indirection). The
Ferranti F100-L was designed by a British company for the
British Military.
The unique feature of the F100-L was that it had a complete
control bus available for a coprocessor. Any instruction
the F100-L couldn't decode was sent directly to the
coprocessor for processing. Applications for coprocessors at
the time were limited, but the design is still used in modern
processors, such as the National Semiconductor 320xx
