The applets in this chapter demonstrate the Intel MCS4 system ("Microcomputer System 4-bit"), the first single-chip microprocessor system in history. Despite the complicated memory architecture with separate program- and data-memories, and despite the somewhat incomplete instruction set, the processor and system architecture provide a very interesting engineering solution. While the MCS4 was soon replaced by much better 8-bit systems, it still paved the way for the microprocessor revolution. The first applet page includes an overview of the architecture and external links to MCS4 documentation, datasheets, and trivia.
