Tiny8 a simple 8 bit microprocessor with classic CISC architecture.
The registers resides in RAM addressed via a base pointer in the WP
register (like the TMS9900). So it has 256 8-bit registers that can be combined to 128 16-bit address registers (the registers pairing is free, no adjacend register numbers needed).
This project contains also a simple assembler.


Uses an ALTERA 10k10 device, only 60% of its resources needed.
256 8-bit registers or 128 16-bit address registers.


ready to be used
